Nominations sought for the Maryellen Weimer Scholarly Work on Teaching and Learning Award

The award recognizes outstanding scholarly contributions with the potential to advance college-level teaching and learning practices.

Author(s) of the winning article will be recognized at the 2014 Teaching Professor Conference, May 30-June 1, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts. The award includes a $1,000 stipend.

Submission Guidelines • Articles published in a pedagogical periodical (discipline-specific such as the Journal of Chemical Education, Teaching of Psychology, or Communication Education or cross-disciplinary publications such as College Teaching) or other higher education publications will be considered.
• 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 study (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, experience or both, an inspirational essay or article that argues a point (like taking a position against grading on a curve).
• Articles must be at least 1,500 words and published in 2012 or later. In-press work will not be considered.
• Submissions may be self-nominated by author(s) or nominated by readers (in this case the author will be contacted and asked if he/she/ they is/are willing to have the article considered for the award.)
