Nominations are encouraged from all schools and colleges engaged in health science related education.
Summary of Nomination Requirements
Nominees will be evaluated based on their direct and/or indirect contributions to the scholarship of teaching and learning, as documented in such areas as student learning outcomes; peer-reviewed activities, such as funded research, publications, education journal reviews; involvement in national workshops; invited lectureships; and presentations at scholarly meetings. Nominees should document contributions to one or more of the following areas:
- Direct student instruction: Educational activities documented through applied research activities including, but not limited to, classroom teaching, clinical teaching, community-based education, advisement, mentoring, curriculum and program development, special student projects, and/or service learning.
- Public service and outreach: Teaching and presentations in continuing education; public service and outreach to practitioners, faculty, and the public; and/or development of programs connecting the University to communities throughout Minnesota; and/or strategies to enhance access to health professions education throughout Minnesota.
- Academic leadership: Service on committees and/or holding positions that provide guidance and direction to education in health science related programs; leadership in evidence-based curriculum innovation, and/or collaboration on the development of interprofessional education across health science programs
- Photo of Nominee: Include a photo of the nominee at time of submission (JPEG format). (If a nominee is selected for the award, this photo will be used for the wall plaque etching.)
The current members of the Academy for Excellence in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, members of the Health Science Associate Deans of Education and Allied Health Program Directors, or external reviewers recommended by the Associate Deans and Program Directors will serve as the review committee and will review and evaluate materials for each nominee. Based upon this review, the Associate Vice President for Academic Health Sciences will forward the recommendations to the Provost, who will have final authority on election of new members.
It is our hope that an in person ceremony can be held early next year once the Sunrise Plan has been fully implemented and University of Minnesota leadership has approved a venue that will allow us to follow any recommended safety guidelines. Final details regarding the awards ceremony will be announced as soon as they are available.
