Teaching Awards adjudication

Each year, over 50 members of our academic community come together to recognize outstanding educators through the University of Calgary Teaching Awards program. 

About Teaching Awards adjudication

With over 13 different categories, this program is one of the most comprehensive and rigorous teaching awards programs in Canada. Award recipients are selected based on an evidence-based, collaborative decision-making process, chaired by the Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning) or delegate. 

Teaching Awards adjudication week is scheduled from February 25 to March 1, 2019. All of our 2019 adjudication committees are now filled. 

Who can adjudicate?

The adjudication process is strengthened by diverse perspectives from across the university community. We are looking for expressions of interest from academic staff, AUPE staff, MaPS, postdoctoral scholars and undergraduate and graduate students to participate as volunteer members of the adjudication committees. All committee members will receive formal letters of recognition and will be invited to attend the University of Calgary’s Annual Celebration of Teaching in April 2019, along with all awards recipients.

How much of a time commitment is it?

Volunteers can anticipate dedicating 10-15 hours of time in reviewing the nomination packages, completing adjudication rubrics, and participating in the collaborative decision-making process during a committee meeting (approximately three hours). Attendance at the committee meeting is obligatory should you decide to participate as an adjudicator. 

You will receive confirmation that your application to adjudicate has been accepted by the beginning of February and notified of your committee meeting's scheduled date and time. You will receive instructions on how to adjudicate, information regarding the other members of your committee and access to a D2L website, from which you can download your assigned nomination packages.
