2018 GRADUATE TA AWARD FOR
EXCELLENCE IN COURSE SUPPORT
Every Rice graduate student and alum who served as a TA in the fall of 2016, spring of 2017, or the summer of 2017 is eligible for the 2018 Graduate TA Award for Excellence in Course Support. This award was designed to recognize graduate students who distinguish themselves in the course support they provide as teaching assistants. Because we are already recognizing TAs with a student support award, the focus of this award is on substantive contributions to course design and delivery. Examples of course support include, but are not limited to, contributions to the design of the syllabus, individual assignments, on-line tutorials, or the delivery of various in-class lessons and activities.
To be considered, students must first be nominated by the faculty member serving as the instructor of record for the nominated course. Instructors who wish to nominate a TA should submit the short nomination form below no later than
11:59PM on November 1st, 2017
