Recognize colleagues for their innovative teaching!
As part of the College of Education’s new initiative on Innovation in Teaching and Technology, we are requesting nominations for presenters of “Innovation 20/20” sessions. Nominees will be invited to briefly share their innovation in a 20 minute presentation, followed by engaging in a 20 minute discussion with the audience. Anyone can be nominated — faculty, students, and staff — because we believe that innovation in teaching is not restricted to rank or position.
While it is difficult to pin down what is meant exactly by “innovative teaching,” here are are a few guidelines.
Nominees should be more than just good teachers. They are people who take some risks and try new things. They are also people who are known to use one or more unique innovative strategies consistently as part of their teaching repertoire. The focus is squarely on “innovation in teaching,” but if some attention is given to how technology makes the teaching innovation possible or feasible, all the better. If you would like to recognize someone in the College of Education for his/her innovation in teaching, please fill out the form here.
