Health Policy doctoral student Jacob Jameson won a Dean’s Award for Excellence in Student Teaching at the Harvard Kennedy School Class Day Awards Ceremony. The award was nominated by the student body for outstanding teaching fellows, course coaches, & course assistants. Jameson was a teaching fellow in three Kennedy courses this year: Resources, Incentives, and Choices I: Markets and Market Failures, Game Theory and Strategic Decisions, and Machine Learning and Big Data Analytics (taught by CHDS faculty Soroush Saghafian).

A quote shared by one of Jameson’s nominators at the Class Day Awards Ceremony said:

“Jacob is an exceptional Teaching Fellow. His expertise and passion for teaching shine through, especially in his handling of quantitative subject matter.”

Separately, Jameson was awarded the Distinction in Student Teaching award— this award is based solely on Teaching Fellow evaluations (in contrast to the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Student Teaching, which is based on student nominations).

Jameson will continue teaching at HKS this summer as the Instructor for Introduction to Economics at the Public Policy and International Affairs Program (PPIA) Junior Summer Institute—a program aimed at diversifying the pipeline of undergraduate students interested in applying to graduate programs in public policy and international affairs.
