Autodesk University is pleased to announce the winners of the AU 2010 Speaker Awards. These highly-coveted awards go to the speakers who receive the highest scores from AU attendees based on surveys completed after the class, either by email or using the kiosks at the conference. The surveys included questions about both content and presentation.
Hands-On Lab. This award goes to the speaker with the highest rating for a hands-on lab class.
dave espinosa-aguilar for Fundamentals of Lisp.
Lecture. This award goes to the speaker with the highest rating for a lecture class.
dave espinosa-aquilar for Becoming an AutoCAD Power User.
Newbie. This award goes to the highest-rated first-time AU speaker.
Gayle Rose for The Need for Transient Cooling.
AU Virtual. This award goes to the AU Virtual speaker who receives the highest ratings. We're disappointed that we can't make this award for 2010. Survey participation for AU Virtual was very low. None of the classes received the minimum number (25) of surveys that we had established as a criterion for getting meaningful feedback on any given session and to making the award.
The Autodesk University team congratulates the winners, who will receive $200 Amazon gift certificates for each award. It's speakers like dave and Gayle who make AU so special, and we really appreciate the efforts they put into developing and presenting their classes.
