The Nomination Process
Step 1: A nominator must complete a short nomination questionnaire by 4:00 pm on February 8, 2022, indicating their intent to support a nominee to attest to the quality and impact of their teaching on student learning.
Nominations can be submitted by Chairs, Deans, faculty, staff and/or students. The nominator will also need to prepare a nomination letter which is to be included as part of the nomination portfolio.
Step 2: The Selection Committee will review the nomination questionnaires and contact the nominators and the selected nominees to invite them to submit a nomination portfolio by 4:00 pm on April 15, 2022. At this time, nominees will also be invited to attend a webinar with the Learning Institute for support in developing a nomination portfolio later in February.
The LLI is available to assist nominees in developing a nomination portfolio. Sample dossiers of the Teaching Excellence Award winners from last year are available upon request.
