Innovation in Teaching
Assistant Professor of Art History
Dr. Bing Huang, assistant professor of art history, is the recipient of the 2018 Innovation in Teaching Excellence award. The honor is given to a faculty member who has implemented outstanding innovative teaching approaches that increase student learning and success.

Dr. Huang earned her bachelor’s degree in history from Shanghai University and a master’s degree in the history of art and architecture from the University of Cambridge. Recently, she earned her doctorate in the history of art and architecture from Harvard University.
Dr. Huang specializes in Chinese art, and her research interests include the artistic and cultural exchange between Europe and East Asia and art and technology. Recently, she has cultivated interest in digital art history and examines the question of medium or media in recent art history theory and practice. She also has been working on virtual reality projects that demonstrate how immersive media technology and in-depth humanist research may be combined to enhance teaching.
Congratulations to Dr. Huang on this well-earned honor.
