The International Conference on College Teaching and Learning recognizes and honors outstanding faculty who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, learning, and technology at its annual conference in Florida. This award funds registration and travel expenses to attend the annual conference, March 24-28, 2013. (For more information visit http://www.teachlearn.org/.) The conference emphasizes the use of innovative strategies, such as interactive and cooperative learning, combined with the use of technology to support higher education learning. Award recipients will also be asked to submit a paper for presentation at the conference describing their work dealing with successful practices and research to improve higher education learning.
Once a year five outstanding teachers are chosen by alumni, students, and tenured faculty to receive a $3,000 award from the MTSU Foundation for their excellence in teaching. The Learning, Teaching and Innovative Technologies Center recognizes the expertise and caring commitment of these individuals and would like to share "what makes these individuals outstanding teachers" with others. We feature them on our web site here.
The Career Achievement Award, created in 2000, recognizes one faculty member each year who, during the course of his or her career, has exhibited profound, sustained, and high quality contributions to the university and the profession in a variety of areas. Nominations must be received by December 2, 2013.
