Graduate Teaching Award for Course Support


Eligibility

Every Rice graduate student who assisted an Instructor of Record in the Fall of 2018, Spring of 2019, or the Summer of 2019 is eligible for the 2020 Graduate Teaching Award for Course Support. This award was designed to recognize graduate students who distinguish themselves in the course support they provide 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.

Nomination Form

Every Rice graduate student and alum who assisted Instructors of Record in the Fall of 2018, Spring of 2019, or Summer of 2019 is eligible for the 2020 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 2018, Spring of 2019, or Summer of 2019, you should submit the short nomination form below no later than 11:59PM on November 1st, 2019.
