Teaching Awards

GSIs across campus are being recognized for their excellent teaching. CRLT warmly congratulates winners of Rackham's Outstanding GSI Award and the College of Engineering's Richard and Eleanor Towner Prize for Outstanding GSIs. Selected from large pools of nominees, all of these instructors have demonstrated extraordinary commitment, creativity, and overall excellence in their teaching.

The four Towner awardees were honored at the College of Engineering's Student Leaders and Honors Brunch on Sunday, March 20. Rackham will be hosting a public awards ceremony to honor its twenty prize-winners, along with outstanding faculty mentors, on April 14. For more information, including the names and departments of all of the winners, see this Rackham page and this College of Engineering page

Are you aware of a U-M colleague who has recently developed an innovative teaching tool or method? Perhaps you've admired a faculty member's creative use of technology in the classroom, original approach to facilitating student collaboration, or new strategies for replicating the advantages of a small course in a large lecture hall. Or maybe you're proud of a teaching innovation you have developed yourself. If any of these is the case, consider submitting a nomination for the 2015 Provost's Teaching Innovation Prize (TIP). Up to five prizes of $5000 will be awarded. 

Now in its seventh year, TIP has honored a range of remarkable teaching innovations, from immersive off-campus experiences, to dynamic interactions in campus classrooms, to effective strategies for supporting independent student learning. In this 4-minute video, you can learn more about last year's 5 TIP winners.

You can find additional video and learn more about all of the past winners here. Complete information about the nomination and selection process can be found on the TIP page in the Grants & Awards section of our website. Nominations are due on February 2, and the awards will be announced in May at the annual campus-wide technology conference, Enriching Scholarship

Up to five prizes of $5000 will be awarded for projects representing remarkable teaching innovations. This will be the sixth year the Provost has sponsored the TIP, which differs from other teaching awards in that it honors specific innovations to improve student learning, rather than an instructor’s overall teaching excellence. The awards also facilitate the dissemination of these innovations so they can be more broadly shared with faculty colleagues.
