Do you have a professor or teaching assistant in the Faculty of Science who was a great teacher and made an outstanding contribution to teaching and learning? Maybe it was someone who took the time to explain, helped you learn how to learn or expanded your ability to think critically.
If so, nominate your instructor for a Faculty of Science Excellence in Teaching Award. The deadline to submit a nomination is Nov. 15.
There are four award categories:
- Senior Tenure-Stream Faculty (greater than seven years of undergraduate teaching experience at York as a full-time faculty member);
- Junior Tenure-Stream Faculty (less than seven years of undergraduate teaching experience at York as a full-time faculty member);
- Non-Tenure Faculty (includes contract/sessional faculty and contractually limited appointments); and
- Teaching Assistants – the Richard Jarrell Excellence in Teaching at the Graduate Level Award (any graduate student or senior undergraduate working as a teaching assistant in the Faculty of Science, including students from other Faculties).
Now is the time you can acknowledge their contribution to education here at York.
