News: Award for Innovative Teaching


The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is pleased to once again offer the Award for Innovative Teaching.  This prize recognizes faculty members who have developed an innovative project or pedagogy within the last academic year aimed at supporting student learning, such as an imaginative approach to student collaboration, a creative use of instructional technology, or a new means of encouraging students to self-regulate their learning.  Innovative projects are those that are original, have a significant impact on student learning and/or students’ classroom experience, and have the potential to inspire other faculty members.


This recognition is open to all full time employees with faculty rank and carries a modest cash award of $500.  In order to encourage dialogue around innovative teaching practices at Centre College, awardees will be asked to share their innovation with the campus, in both an online and in person format.  Nominations help alert us to the innovative teaching practices that are being used in our classrooms, so we encourage you to submit nominations.


To nominate yourself or a colleague, please send us an email ( with the name of your nominee and a one paragraph rationale for why you are nominating him/her by Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Select nominees will be contacted for more information, and the selection committee will notify the awardees no later than July 1, 2018.
