Excellence in the different methods of teaching occurs in various contexts. It occurs in large classes, medium classes, small classes, one-on-one teaching and curriculum development. We expect the candidate to excel in a combination of these contexts. We will consider the following, among others, as factors:
1. Mastery of the subject area;
2. Development of effective and innovative methods and materials for teaching university students;
3. Continuous efforts to evaluate and improve one's own teaching;
4. Academic and professional achievements of students; and
5. Effective relationships with students.
Since these awards are designed to recognize current achievements, please document examples from the most recent five years.
All documentation (CVs, letters, evaluations, testimonials, SFFs, etc) should be uploaded to the awards upload web site. Both Temple people (students, supporting faculty, department representatives, etc) and non-Temple people (former students, former colleagues) can access this site securely, and uploaded documents will remain confidential, viewable only by the awards committee. Documentation will not be accepted by e-mail.
