CON9.02 – From Teacher to Leader: The Why and How of Teaching Award Nominations (Room A232)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Developing teaching award nominations is an important way to ensure that excellent teaching gets the recognition it deserves. But it’s also an intensive professional development opportunity for the faculty members and nominating team involved, crystallizing a narrative of teaching identity that can act as a transformative catalyst through which exceptional teachers re-envision their roles and spheres of influence within the Academy.  It's a process of discernment that gets at the true value of teaching, at the individual and the institutional level.

At this interactive session, members of the University of Windsor’s external teaching award nomination team, along with an award winning professor, will lead participants through the processes of:

choosing the right award and understanding its basic requirements;
identifying teaching strengths and working with them; and
helping people write about teaching, whether they’re letter writers, nominees, or nominators.

The session will interweave the how with the why – through activities and discussion.  Participants will explore the impact and value of collaboratively documenting their lives in teaching, as well as of the impact of public recognition on those lives.
