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 an important 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 an online 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 them by Wednesday, May 15, 2019. Select nominees will be contacted for more information, and awardees will be notified no later than July 1, 2019.
