Nominations open for teaching excellence awards

Members of Brock’s academic community are invited to submit nominations for the University’s 2019 Chancellor’s Chairs for Teaching Excellence.

Since 2005, Brock’s Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (CPI) has administered the awards, which offer three recipients $5,000 per year for three years to pursue innovative projects in teaching, learning and/or educational technology.

The awards are sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Vice-President, Academic and encourage Chairs to develop projects that are at the forefront of teaching and learning.

Previous Chairs’ projects have included using 3D hardware to enhance online class discussions, preparing students to work in team-oriented environments in the health-care field and gauging students’ perceptions of Wikipedia use through a graduate-level assignment.

This year’s submissions are due by April 15 and require contact information for up to four references, a short abstract of the research proposal, details of the program, as well as a recent teaching dossier.

New Teaching Excellence Chair appointments will be effective July 1. Chairs present project updates and findings annually at the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning event, which will this year be held on Wednesday, March 27 from 10 a.m. to noon in ST103.
