Professor Lauded for Making Classroom Experience Feel Personal
UT Dallas News Center
UT Dallas professor Dr. Daniel Arce is known for his high standards and high-caliber teaching in some of the program’s largest classes.
Dr. Denis Dean, dean of the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, said the logistics of big classes often are tough for teachers, but Arce excels in the situation.
“His students learn the subjects; their performance in subsequent classes proves that,” Dean said. “And despite the fact that he holds their feet to the fire and holds them to high standards, his students enjoy his classes – the teaching evaluations prove that. Not many faculty members could pull off that combination of results.”
