May 01, 2007

Jeffrey H. Moore, a senior lecturer in Operations, Information, and Technology, is the 2007 recipient of the Sloan Distinguished Teaching Award.

Moore, who taught the Sloan core Modeling and Analysis course in fall 2006, was praised for his dedication to teaching and to his students. Sloan fellows held the award ceremony on May 29.

“Jeff Moore spent much effort to make us understand the essence of statistics and modeling,” a member of the Sloan Class of 2007 wrote. “His message to corporate managers at the final two classes was really impressive. His lecture was rich in ‘message.’”

Another member of the class said Moore “took me from poet to novice modeler. His passion came through in every session. He was prepared, sharp, and engaging. Feedback was always available and personal.”

A fellow added that “Professor Moore’s passion was unbelievable. He turned a very boring subject into an exciting one. He taught us very practical, useful, and essential tools.”

The award recognizes the work of professors teaching in the Sloan core courses. Moore has received it twice in the past in 1996 and 1998.

Moore joined the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 1972 after spending more than 10 years as a design engineer, communications engineer, computer systems analyst, and management analyst. He served as the School’s assistant dean for information technology from 1979 to 1999.

Currently, he serves as director of SunTELL, the School’s Technology Experimental Learning Laboratory. He has designed and taught courses on modeling, data analysis, and IT concepts in the operations and information technology area at the MBA and executive levels.

Moore earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Cincinnati, an MBA from Texas A&M University, and a PhD from UC Berkeley.
