Jess Paga Wins Prestigious Pedagogy Award

paga_award.jpgCongratulations to Jess Paga, who has received the Award for Excellence in Teaching Classics given annually by the Society for Classical Studies to three of the top educators at the college level. The SCS recognized Professor Paga’s ability to “bring the ancient world alive for her students in a broad range of courses, from topics in ancient Mediterranean archaeology to Greek and Roman tragedy.”

Among other strengths, the award committee noted her innovative integration of VR technology into the classroom: “Professor Paga finds many opportunities to bring her research interests in ancient archaeology before her students’ eyes using augmented reality and virtual reality technologies.”

The award reflects the major impact that Professor Paga has made at William & Mary: “Professor Paga’s engaged and supportive teaching has already left a legacy of dedicated students who have participated in field schools, study abroad experiences, thesis projects, and other extended engagements with her.”

Congratulations Professor Paga!
