Call for Nominations - Teaching Excellence Awards
Marcia Higaki firstname.lastname@example.org
A call for nominations is currently underway to all faculty and students. The purpose of these awards is to recognize members of the MUSC faculty who have made outstanding contributions to the university through teaching.
Awards may be given from the following categories:
Clinical/Professional (Educator-Mentor): For teaching excellence in non-traditional roles with individuals or small groups, specifically those who teach, mentor, or serve as role models in their clinical and professional development.
Scholarship/Academic (Educator-Mentor): For teaching excellence in non-traditional roles with individuals or small groups, specifically those who teach, mentor, or serve as role models in their scholarly or academic development.
Educator-Lecturer: For teaching excellence in traditional, didactic or classroom teaching.
Developing Teacher: For teaching excellence demonstrated by a junior faculty member in either of the above categories.
Any regular, full-time faculty member who holds an academic rank of instructor or higher in a college or department of MUSC, who has not been the recipient of this award within the previous three years is eligible for nomination. Faculty who are nominated in the Clinical/Professional (Educator-Mentor), Scholarship/Academic (Educator-Mentor), or Educator-Lecturer categories must have taught at MUSC for three or more years.
Those nominated for the Developing Teacher category must have taught for a minimum of two years at MUSC and for no more than four years total at an institute of higher education.
Presented for the first time in 1995, these university-wide teaching awards were proposed as part of MUSC's Educational Strategic Plan. In addition to a commemorative medallion, each recipient will receive a cash award from the MUSC Foundation.
The deadline for nominations is 5:00pm, Monday, January 28. Nominees will be invited to submit supporting materials, and a committee of faculty and students representing MUSC's six colleges, Library Sciences and Informatics, and the Student Government Association will review the nominations and select the recipients for this year's awards.
Forms may be obtained and submitted online at http://www.carc.musc.edu/nomination/.
