The Center for Teaching and Learning and Undergraduate Academic Affairs invite nominations for the 2015 Distinguished Teaching Awards, Distinguished Teaching Award for Innovation with Technology, and the Excellence in Teaching Awards.
The Distinguished Teaching Award honors five instructors who have demonstrated extensive knowledge and mastery of the subject matter; displayed the ability to inspire, guide and mentor students through independent and creative thinking; innovated to increase student engagement and learning; provided leadership in teaching at UW; and enriched the scholarship of teaching and learning.
The Distinguished Teaching Award for Innovation with Technology (DTA-I) recognizes a faculty member from any of the three University of Washington campuses who demonstrates a significant impact on student learning; displays originality of a project with the ability to apply the project on a larger scale; and whose project has potential for adaptation to different courses, student demographics, or instructional settings. As with other awards, this honor is given one time only to a faculty member. Those who have already received a Distinguished Teaching Award are ineligible for a DTA-I.
The Excellence in Teaching Award is given to two graduate teaching assistants who have demonstrated extraordinary ability in teaching and mentoring.
Nominations are accepted via web only. To begin the nomination process, we ask that you submit your online form at www.uw.edu/teaching/awards . The deadline for all submissions is Monday, December 8, 2014, 5:00 p.m.
