Do you have a professor at the U of M who is an exceptional teacher? The Distinguished Teaching Award Committee is soliciting nominations for awards recognizing faculty who are outstanding educators. Honorees are recognized at the annual Faculty Convocation held at the end of the spring semester.

Students and alumni can nominate a professor for the 2014 Alumni Association Distinguished Teaching Award, which recognizes and encourages excellence in teaching.  Added weight will be given to faculty members who receive nominations from two or more sources (students, faculty, and alumni). A nominee’s total number of nominations may also be given added weight.

Students should use this link: http://www.memphis.edu/dta_student

Alumni should use this link:  http://umwa.memphis.edu/dta/alumninomination.php

The nomination deadline is Friday, November 22, 2013. If you have questions please contact Dr. Melinda Jones, (901) 678-2690.

What's your superpower?

I would like to encourage all current students and alumni to consider nominating an IDT faculty member for the UofM Distinguished Teaching Award. This is a very prestigious honor for a faculty member, and I believe that IDT houses some of the best teachers in the university.  Here’s the info:

Again this year The University of Memphis will honor outstanding professors with the presentation of the Distinguished Teaching Award, which is funded and sponsored by The University of Memphis Alumni Association.  For faculty members to win the award they must receive nominations from other faculty, alumni, and students. The awards will be presented at the Spring 2013 Faculty Convocation.

Members of the Distinguished Teaching Award Committee earnestly solicit your nominations of colleagues deserving of the award, so that meritorious faculty can be recognized and rewarded. Please take the time to submit your nomination at the link below:

http://www.memphis.edu/dta_faculty (for faculty to nominate)

For the nominations to be considered valid, nominators must briefly provide their reasons for nominating the individual in the space provided on the on-line nomination form.

The nomination deadline is Monday, November 19. If you have questions, please contact:
