2018 GRADUATE TEACHING AWARD
FOR COURSE SUPPORT
Every Rice graduate student and alum who assisted Instructors of Record in the fall of 2016, spring of 2017, or the summer of 2017 is eligible for the 2018 Graduate Teaching Award for Course Support.
This award was designed to
recognize one graduate student who has distinguished themselves in the course support they have provided to an Instructor of Record. Because we are already recognizing graduate students 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. As this is an award for course support, graduate students must be nominated by the Instructor of Record for whom they provided assistance.
If you are a faculty member, postdoc, or other Instructor of Record who would like to nominate a graduate student from a course you taught in the Fall of 2016, Spring of 2017, or Summer of 2017, you should submit the short nomination form below
no later than
