A campus-wide nomination process is now underway to find a worthy recipient for the Queen’s University Alumni Association’s 2013 Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching.
“Queen’s is a great university in many respects, not least because of the quality of its educators and their dedication to innovative teaching and learning,” says QUAA President Jess Joss. “The QUAA is proud to sponsor this award. Each year we look forward to selecting a winner from the very talented pool of submissions. Many of us remember those professors who made a profound impact on our lives and career choices. It’s not often that there’s an opportunity to make sure these inspirational people get the recognition that they deserve, and that’s one thing that makes this award such a special one to present.”
2013 will be the 38th year that the QUAA will honour a Queen’s professor who has shown “outstanding knowledge, teaching ability, and accessibility to students.” The QUAA will accept nominations from students, staff, and faculty for the award.
The Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching was first initiated in 1975 at the urging of Queen’s students, and is the university’s first campus-wide teaching honour. The award comes with a prize of $5,000 and a feature story in the Queen’s Alumni Review.
