The Senates’ Teaching Awards Committee is currently accepting nominations for the Neil Scott Educational Leadership Award. If you know of a worthy candidate, please identify him/her to your dean or department chair by Friday, Jan. 4, 2019. The deadline for deans and chairs to submit nominations to the Centre for Enhanced Teaching & Learning is Monday, Feb. 4, 2019.

The purpose of this award is to acknowledge those individuals who have taken a leadership role and have developed and improved the teaching culture within or beyond the university. The award is also designed to be in harmony with the Association of Atlantic Universities Award for Instructional Leadership.

This award recognizes commitment over an extended period to the improvement of university teaching, particularly within the university and, perhaps, beyond. An individual nominated for this award will, in part, have provided leadership among faculty colleagues in pursuing activities that help create an environment in which teaching excellence is fostered and appreciated. The recipient of this award, for example, might:

  • have participated in organizing the institution’s ongoing efforts to improve the quality of instruction it offers to its students;
  • have been involved mentoring faculty members;
  • have been instrumental in the development of a programme of teaching awards;
  • have assisted colleagues either formally or informally in their efforts to improve their teaching;
  • have provided guidance to new faculty members;
  • have organized or participated actively in workshops, symposia, or conferences on university instruction; or,
  • have been involved in collaborative efforts to develop innovative methods of teaching
