CON03.01 - Preparing a 3M National Teaching Fellowship Nomination: Advice from Three Perspectives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Compiling teaching dossiers of any kind is a challenging task, and the 50-page nomination dossier for the 3M National Teaching Fellowships can appear especially daunting, particularly in its emphasis on both excellence in teaching and in educational leadership. As well, 2017 will be the first year that the Fellowship is open to all instructors at the post-secondary level in Canada, so you may have questions about nominating those from the college sector. In this panel session, three veterans of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship selection committee – the Coordinator of the program, the Chair of the Educational Developers’ Caucus, and the chair of the Standing Committee for College Advocacy within STLHE -- will offer their suggestions for prospective nominators or nominees. Among other things, we will look at clarifying and developing the educational leadership section, at identifying what is extraordinary in the nominee’s teaching, and at making the best use of the page count. After participants have the chance to formulate questions in small groups, each panelist will offer three suggestions, and the rest of the time will be devoted to responding to group or individual questions.
