Applications Due: Noon EST on Monday, July 17, 2017

The Innovations in Teaching and Learning Awards recognize innovative assignments and activities, in or out of the classroom, that positively affect student learning.

Any full-time faculty member from any school or college regardless of rank or tenure status can be nominated. Faculty who team-teach courses may apply as a team.




Nominations can come from colleagues, chairs, deans, and applicants themselves.

The Application Packet should be submitted as a single PDF file that contains:

*A nominee-prepared description (500 words, maximum) of the innovation that includes its teaching and learning goals as well as evidence of its effectiveness;
*A copy of student evaluations that include qualitative comments relevant to the innovation; and
*One to three letters from the nominee’s chair or colleagues specifically addressing the innovation rather than the nominee’s general teaching ability; one of these may be the nomination letter is the application is not from a self-nominee.



Winners will be recognized at the August Faculty/Staff Kickoff  and receive $500 in faculty development funds to be spent in the following academic year.



Please email the single PDF file to Nels P. Highberg, Associate Professor of English and Modern Languages and 2016-18 Harry Jack Gray Distinguished Teaching Humanist, at "drnels@gmail.com" before noon EST on Monday, July 17, 2017.
