Welcome and thank you for taking the time to nominate a professor for a School of Science Teaching Prize. Your nominations are very important to us.
The Teaching Prize for Undergraduate Education recognizes outstanding teaching not only in undergraduate subjects with large enrollments (such as those that satisfy the General Institute Requirements in science), but also in upper-level science subjects in which enrollments are smaller.
For the Teaching Prize for Graduate Education, preference will be given to nominees who teach mainstream subjects in which fundamental principles of the relevant fields are presented. Such courses typically provide the basis for advanced education and research and prepare students for professional careers.
Nomination letters from either faculty or students are welcome. Letters should indicate the name of the nominee, course taught, and reasons for nomination.
For a professor to receive a prize, at least one letter is required. However, multiple nominations are useful, so you may want to get a group of students to each send in a nomination for one professor. You can use one form or multiple forms to do this.
You can nominate a professor (sorry, no TAs or instructors) teaching a GIR, a fundamental or a more specialized Science subject. Science subjects are Courses V (Chemistry), VII (Biology), IX (BCS), VIII (Physics), XII (EAPS) and XVIII (Mathematics). A complete list of School of Science faculty may be found here: http://science.mit.edu/research/faculty
Nominations are due on Friday, June 16, 2017. Please submit additional materials to Annie Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
