Who Are the Outstanding Teachers of
Once a year five outstanding teachers are chosen by alumni, students, and tenured faculty to receive a $3,000 award from the MTSU Foundation for their excellence in teaching. The Learning, Teaching and Innovative Technologies Center recognizes the expertise and caring commitment of these individuals and would like to share "what makes these individuals outstanding teachers" with others. We feature them on our web site header above.
Outstanding Teachers Information
In 2006, our Faculty Fellows took on the
responsibility of videotaping interviews with the outstanding
teachers, allowing us to share their experiences with
others. In 2008, the center adopted a podcast format
to record a brief interview,
on our iTunesU site, with each teacher. We have also
created web pages for them that feature their biographies and
other information about their teaching and interests.
Nominating Process and Guidelines
Nominations for these awards are made in the spring by alumni, faculty, and students. Selections are based upon evaluations by both students and tenured faculty. The nomination forms for the outstanding teacher are available in both HTML and Adobe PDF formats.
Guidelines for Nomination
