About the Teaching Awards

Since 2014, the University of Calgary Teaching Awards have recognized and celebrated outstanding contributions to teaching and learning. The University of Calgary Teaching Awards are comprised of 13 categories that recognize teaching excellence in diverse learning contexts by individuals and teams through curriculum design and educational leadership.  

A University of Calgary Teaching Award is a distinguished honour for members of our university community who, through their commitment and expertise, create deep and lasting learning experiences. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to nominate individuals and groups who make outstanding contributions to enriching the quality and breadth of learning.
