The University Wine Teaching Award Committee selects three winners from eight nominees, one from each College. Each Wine Award winner receives a cash award of $2,000 and automatic induction into the Academy of Teaching Excellence.The University Committee will meet in February. At the selection meeting, the chair of each College Wine Teaching Award Committee will summarize the dossier of the nominee from that College.
Each College Wine Teaching Award Committee establishes its own procedures for selecting a nominee from candidates within the College. Contact your College chair for information about this year's process.
Note that because the William E. Wine Award recognizes "a history of university teaching excellence," the most competitive dossiers demonstrate continuity of excellence over a significant period of time. Also, the dossiers of award winners are those that prove most compelling to representatives from other colleges. Finally, the best evidence of strong teaching is a demonstration of student learning. The most competitive dossiers thoroughly describe what the nominees do and how they do it, as well as how students benefit from the experience. Be sure to follow the Dossier Guidelines closely.
Dossiers of each college's nominee must be received electronically, in PDF format by 5pm, February 9, 2018 at email@example.com.
