The recipient will be recognized at CPI’s annual Tribute to Teaching and will receive a framed certificate and teaching and learning grant. A plaque recognizing this achievement will be housed in the CPI. The adjudication committee reserves the right not to name a recipient in any given year.
The nomination package must be submitted to the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (TH136) in hard copy or electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 8th annually. The award will be conferred at the Tribute to Teaching event in early December.
