2015 Deans' Teaching Showcase
During each spring semester, the five college Deans will identify outstanding instructors within their unit. (Engineering-4, Sciences and Arts-5, Business-1, Forestry-1, and Technology-1) These twelve nominees (allocated proportionally by total number of affiliated faculty) will be announced one per week through the spring term. All twelve will be invited to an end-of-term luncheon at which they'll receive formal recognition and a small token of appreciation from the CTL.
Beginning in 2017, Deans' Teaching Showcase winners are considered (along with the distinguished teaching award finalists not selected) for three additional university-wide $1000 awards in targeted areas. Awards will be given for exceptional large classroom/introductory teaching, innovative or outside the classroom teaching methods, and/or curriculum or assessment development. Each awardee will be asked to make a presentation at a separate CTL event the following fall, sharing exceptional contributions and formally receiving recognition. Recipients take part in the next selection process.
