Workshop: Crafting Successful Nominations for the USDA Teaching Excellence Awards Program and Other Teaching Awards Programs
Date & Time
Thursday, June 23, 2022, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Carolyn Copenheaver Nick Fuhrman Suzanne Ryan

The United States Department of Agriculture is looking to increase nominations of outstanding teachers to their Awards Program for Excellence in College and University Teaching in the Food and Agricultural Sciences. This awards program honors excellence in teaching among early career faculty members, late career faculty members, and instructors or faculty with teaching-only assignments. This workshop aims to provide guidance to faculty members and administrators especially from universities with faculty members who have not been recognized in the past.
The application for the USDA Teaching Excellence Awards Program is similar to many teaching recognition programs and therefore, potential participants interested in applying for the NACTA teaching awards or departmental or college teaching awards programs also will find this workshop to be beneficial. The workshop presenters look forward to sharing their experiences and enthusiasm for documenting excellence in teaching.
