Nominations for the 3M National Teaching Fellowship will be accepted until 30 September 2018
TORONTO, Aug. 28, 2018 /CNW/ - The Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) and 3M Canada today issued a final call for nominations for the 3M National Teaching Fellowship 2019.
The Fellowship is Canada's most prestigious recognition of excellence in educational leadership and teaching at the university and college level, and has been in existence for a little over three decades. Former students, administrators, department heads and colleagues are being encouraged to nominate teachers who embody the highest ideals of teaching and educational leadership by the deadline of 30 September 2018.
"The greatest teachers show a commitment to encourage and support the educational experience of every learner. We are calling on Canadians to nominate educators who have had a profound impact either on their own lives or on the lives of others," said Denise Stockley, President of STLHE.
The Fellowship is open to any individual currently teaching at a Canadian university or college, regardless of discipline, program, level, or term of appointment. Current Fellows span many disciplines – from Statistical and Biological Sciences to Geography and Visual and Performing Arts.
"We see it as our goal to put a brighter future within reach of all Canadians – through the work that 3M scientists do and the wider impact our team has in communities across the country. In particular, we are working to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning. Recognizing teaching excellence across these subjects and all disciplines is important as teachers do so much to inspire us and shape our learning. We are delighted to be working with STLHE and continuing our relationship of over three decades," said Lisa Citton-Battel, Director, Marketing & Sales Operations, 3M Canada.
Following a selection process overseen by the STLHE Board of Directors, 3M National Teaching Fellows, and educational development specialists, recipients of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship will be announced on February 15, 2019. Those selected will join a group of over 300 3M National Teaching Fellows from more than 80 small and large Canadian post-secondary institutions.
New Fellows become life members of STLHE and the Council of 3M National Fellows for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. They will also be invited to attend the STLHE annual conference (10 – 14 June 2019) and a teaching and learning retreat at the Château Montebello, 8 – 12 November 2019.
