Award description

Award winners will be recognized publicly at the end of the Innovation in Teaching Conference. Following the conference, winners will receive individualized follow up consultations from the Assistant Director for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Colleen Kuusinen. The consultations will occur as a cohort (all award winners) and individually over the fall and spring semesters, 2017-2018. The goal of the consultations will be to provide assistance, in whatever form needed, to advance the study with the ultimate goal of publication in a SoTL or discipline-based education research journal chosen by the awardee, or presentation at a national conference. Award winners will also meet with CTL national speakers during the Spring 2018 semester and may be asked to write a guest feature for the monthly SoTL newsletter. 

Eligibility

Any proposal submitted to the conference, whether by faculty, student, staff, or postdoctoral researcher. Must opt-in to be considered for this award when submitting a proposal online. 

Selection process

Up to 3 proposals will be chosen for this award based on information gathered from the proposal submission and on the day of the conference. Abstracts will be blind reviewed by a team of CTL and USG academic developers, and finalists will be notified and emailed for additional information regarding their proposal. The review team will attend the poster or presentation session of the applicant and announce that they were a finalist.
