Provost's Innovative Teaching with Technology Award
This annual award recognizes a full-time RIT faculty member who uses technology to teach in effective and innovative ways. The range of acceptable entries is broad; such as the incorporation of a new technology, or the use of an existing technology or teaching methodology in a unique way. With the launch of the Innovative Learning Institute and the emphasis on fostering the use of technology to positively impact student-learning, nominations for this award will be evaluated against the Institute's definition and rubric of innovative teaching and learning:
"Any teaching strategy, approach, technique, or tool that is used, or used in a new way, to produce quantifiable gain for student outcomes or the student experience, and can be implemented widely at RIT."
Eligibility Requirements and Selection of Award Recipient
- All full-time RIT faculty with at least one year of experience are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to those entries using existing technology that could be made available to all faculty. Nominees may be invited to demonstrate their application of this technology and share their experiences with the RIT community.
- Candidates may be self-nominated, or nominated by any member of the RIT community including students, alumni, or colleagues.
- The review committee assesses nominations to determine if they meet eligibility requirements, then individually and collectively ranks the application package according to how strongly each candidate meets the stated criteria. After careful deliberation, one recipient is selected from the pool. The review committee provides its recommendation to the Provost.
Further information about eligibility, important dates, the selection process, and the application are available through the Provost’s Award Website.
