CETL Outstanding Graduate Teaching Awards

Guidelines

The Outstanding Graduate Teaching Awards were established in 1999 to recognize teaching assistants who demonstrate excellence in the classroom or laboratory. The nominee for this award should demonstrate effective instructional skills, possess excellent interpersonal skills, provide practical feedback, and contribute to the development of the instructional program.

The value of each Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award will be $2,500 to be presented at the CETL Awards Reception in April.

Nomination Procedure

This year, deans and department heads will nominate eligible graduate students for the CETL Outstanding Graduate Teachings Award based on the criteria above. Graduate Students will be notified of their candidacy by December 4th, and will have five weeks to complete an awards supplemental packet which is due on January 8th. A committee of former teaching fellows will review the nominations and determine the winners of the 2018 Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning Awards. Winners will be announced on March 5th and honored at the CETL Awards Reception on April 4, 2018.
