The student-nominated Teaching Excellence and Innovation Awards honor faculty members who inspire students; enhance student learning through creative, engaging and innovative teaching methods; and/or support student success in the classroom and student growth as public health professionals.
The teaching innovation initiative developed out of the School’s SPH2020 efforts and through a teaching and learning task force held at the School in 2011. The task force had recommended identification, encouragement and reward of high-quality teaching; enhanced technology and applications for teaching and learning; and identification and support of faculty members who are early adopters of curriculum innovation.
A $1,000 prize is intended to help each winner advance his or her educational development in teaching and learning.
Nominations are to be submitted online via Qualtrics survey. The deadline for submissions will be Monday, March 4, 2019.
