Nominate faculty members for the 2015 School of Science Teaching Prizes! These are given for both Undergraduate and Graduate Education. For the Teaching Prize for Graduate Education, preference will be given to nominees who teach mainstream subjects in which fundamental principles of the relevant fields are presented. Such courses typically provide the basis for advanced education and research and prepare students for professional careers. You can nominate a professor teaching a GIR, a fundamental or more specialized Science subject. Science subjects are Courses 5 (Chemistry), 7 (Biology), 9 (Brain and Cognitive Sciences), 8 (Physics), 12 (Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences) and 18 (Mathematics). Nomination letters from faculty members or students for either award are welcome. Nominations are easy and quick to submit: simply fill out the short online nomination form by the deadline on May 29, 2015. Although one strong letter is sufficient, additional letters of support are useful. You may want to get fellow students or colleagues to submit supporting nomination for your candidate. You can use one form or multiple forms to do this. Your nominations are important to recognizing and honoring teaching excellence in Science and at MIT. Don’t hold back!
