Charles Kostelnick was awarded the Jay R. Gould Award for Excellence in Teaching Technical Communication by the Society for Technical Communication. The Jay R. Gould Award honors the distinguished teaching career of Professor Gould. Professor Gould's academic mentorship of technical communication students guided many men and women into the profession. The award honors excellence in teaching that becomes true academic mentorship: the personal and professional concern that the best teachers extend to their students beyond the demands of the classroom and beyond even graduation as former students continue to grow throughout their professional careers.
Kostelnick’s citation reads:
For your leading of students to new understandings of the role of visuals in communication, and your application of researched principles to classroom learning. You have changed the way we teach visuals in the classroom and how they are understood in the workplace.
