Augustana Center for Teaching and Learning
Announcing the McGraw-Hill and Teaching Professor (Magna Publications) Scholarly Work on Teaching and Learning Award
McGraw-Hill and The Teaching Professor (Magna Publications, Inc.) have joined forces to create an award that recognizes exemplary scholarly work on teaching and learning. The first award with its accompanying stipend of $1,000 will be given at the 2009 Teaching Professor Conference, June 5-7 in Washington, D.C.
To be considered, the piece of scholarly writing must be at least 1,500 words and must have been published after 2006 in a discipline-specific, a cross-disciplinary pedagogical periodical, or a more general higher education publication. The piece of scholarship may address any topic related to college-level teaching and learning. Preference will not be given to a particular kind of scholarship. It may be a research report (quantitative or qualitative), a piece that describes development and/or implementation of a new teaching strategy or assignment, an article that offers advice based on research or experience or both, or an inspirational essay or article that takes a position with respect to an aspect of instruction or a teaching-learning issue. Articles may be nominated by readers or authors.
Submitted articles will be blind reviewed by a panel which will include published authors, editors and faculty familiar with the pedagogical literature. Among a variety of criteria, they will be looking for an article with potential to positively impact the instructional practice of the college teaching community. A complete list of criteria, other award details and submission procedures may be found at: www.teachingprofessor.com/award.
Plans are underway to disseminate the winning article at The Teaching Professor Conference, in The Teaching Professor newsletter and beyond.
