Award Description: The Innovations in Teaching and Learning Awards recognize innovative assignments and activities, in or out of the classroom, that positively impact student learning. Faculty who team-teach courses may apply as a team.
Who May Be Nominated: Any full-time faculty member from any school or college regardless of rank or tenure status.
Who May Nominate: Self-nominations are welcomed, as well as nominations by colleagues, students, chairs, deans, etc.
• A nominee-prepared, one-page description of the innovation. This should include teaching/learning goals and evidence of effectiveness.
• Student evaluations (must include qualitative comments, not only numbers) relevant to the innovation.
• One to three letters from chair or colleagues. These should specifically address the innovation rather than the nominee’s general teaching ability.
The Prize: $500 in faculty development funds, presented at the annual August meeting of faculty and staff.
