Educational Scholar Award
The Educational Scholar Award recognizes the accomplishments of a single faculty member or of a group of cooperating and coordinating faculty who have demonstrated excellence in educational or pedagogical research or scholarship. Those interested in the award should apply directly, rather than being nominated by others. Applications may be submitted between the first day of the fall term and the last day of the winter term of each academic year. All tenure track and tenured faculty who have not received the award in the last three years are eligible.
Again, individuals or groups of faculty who have worked together on a common project or series of projects may apply.
Applicants should submit the following:
A brief (approx. 100 to 1,000 words) statement about the applicant(s) and why he or she (or the group) deserves the award; this should include a list of recent pedagogical and educational scholarship.
A short (under 10,000 words) sample of ONE recent example (published or presented in 2005 or later) of the applicant's scholarship; this may be a book chapter, an article, a conference paper, etc.
Nominations should be submitted by e-mail to the CETL Selection Committee firstname.lastname@example.org
The subject line should be: Educational Scholar Application.
The main criterion for the award is evidence of excellence in pedagogical or educational scholarship (theoretical, speculative, qualitative, quantitative, etc.); evidence of the influence of this scholarship on various academic, professional, or other communities may be considered.
