As part of this year’s MIT Awards Convocation on April 28th, the Office of the Dean of Graduate Education is issuing a call for nominations for the Goodwin Medal, an award given each year to a graduate TA or instructor (G) who has excelled beyond expectations with teaching efforts that can only be described as “conspicuously effective.” The Goodwin Medal is an award honoring Harry Manley Goodwin, the first dean of MIT’s graduate school, that consists of an engraved bronze medal designed by Katharine Lane and a cash gift of $2,500. Consider submitting a nomination on behalf of an extraordinary graduate TA or instructor. Any member of the faculty or any organized student group may submit a nomination to the candidate’s department head, who in turn will submit final nominations (one allowed per department). The final nomination from each department is due to the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education by 5 pm on Monday, March 16, 2015. The recipient will be announced at the MIT Awards Convocation on Tuesday, April 28 at 4 pm in 10-250. For more details on the Goodwin Medal, eligibility, and the nomination process, please visit the ODGE website.
