Since 1976, the University Faculty Lecture has honored faculty whose undaunted research, scholarship or art have made a major impact on their profession — and beyond. In conjunction with the Office of the Provost, UW faculty members choose one of their peers to deliver this annual lecture. Professor Lillian McDermott joins a roster of Nobel laureates, historians, artists, scientists and authors who have presented this series over its long history.
Lillian C. McDermott has been awarded this recognition and delivered the University Faculty Lecture on Thursday, December 19. Lillian is a professor of Physics, director of the Physics Education Group, and a leader in the field of Physics Education Research.
