College of Education Excellence in Teaching Awards

Teaching excellence, along with research and service, is at the core of the College of Education's mission. Each degree program is crafted to prepare only the highest quality educators, and each instructor must be a model for the kind of teaching that truly fosters interest, engagement, mastery. In 2005, the college honored its first group of Excellence in Teaching and Innovation Award winners - faculty and teaching assistants who truly exemplify effective teaching.

Selected each year by a committee of peers based on powerful evidence, the recipients' innovative practices and materials are then circulated and serve as a public reminder of our commitment to high-quality teaching. The awards are presented through the Center for the Scholarship of Teaching.

"We have, in the university, a lot of knowledge about how to teach, but one of the problems is that (our) teaching is mostly invisible and really private," said Suzanne Wilson, who directs the center. "We wanted something that wasn't just another award. We wanted something that would help us increase our capacity to teach well, as a college."
