Distinguished Teaching Awards: Call for Nominations

The Center for Teaching and Learning and Undergraduate Academic Affairs
invites nominations for the 2014 Distinguished Teaching Awards, Excellence
in Teaching Awards, and the S. Sterling Munro Public Service Teaching Award.

The Distinguished Teaching Award honors 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; and served as mentors, collaborators and consultants to other
faculty members and teaching assistants by helping to enrich the scholarship
of teaching and learning.  The Seattle campus selects five recipients;
Bothell and Tacoma each recognize one instructor.  The three UW campuses
have separate nominations processes, so please be sure to select the
appropriate campus.

We are pleased to announce that the Provost has funded the creation of the
Distinguished Teaching Award for Innovation with Technology.  This award
recognizes a faculty member from any University of Washington campus for
incorporating technology into their teaching practice in innovative ways
that enhance student engagement and learning.  As with our awards, this
honor is given one time only to a faculty member.  Those who have already
received a Distinguished Teaching Award are not eligible.

The Excellence in Teaching Award is given to two graduate teaching
assistants for their demonstration of extraordinary ability in the teaching
and learning process.

Thanks to a generous gift from the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, the S.
Sterling Munro Public Service Teaching Award is given annually to a faculty
member who has demonstrated exemplary leadership in community-based
instruction, including public service internships and community partnership
projects.  Faculty members from all three University of Washington campuses
are eligible.

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 2, 2013, 5pm.  Chairs will
be notified of nominations in their departments through email by or before
December 11.  For questions regarding the awards process, please email
