Recognizing Faculty and Staff
If you are or know of a faculty or staff member who has undertaken an exceptional experiential learning project, you might consider a nomination for one of the many awards that recognize teaching excellence at the University of Toronto. To learn more about awards you may be eligible for, visit the Teaching Awards & Grants Database.
Highlight on Awards
The Northrop Frye Award (Faculty) recognizes the excellence of an individual faculty member, an individual librarian / staff member, or a team who have undertaken a teaching and learning project within the last five years that significantly enhanced the undergraduate student learning experience. This could include (but is not limited to) curricular innovations, co-curricular learning opportunities, and instructional / pedagogical innovations.
If you know an outstanding student who you feel should be recognized for the impact they have made as part of a curricular Work-Integrated Learning or Co-op opportunity, consider nominating them to represent University of Toronto for the Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada and / or Experiential & Work-Integrated Learning Ontario (EWO) Student of the Year Awards.
The Tri-Campus CEWIL and EWO Nomination Awards Committee collects nominations from academic divisions and works to identify the most qualified students to put forward for each of the awards.
You might also review Award Explorer, a database that will help you to explore the diverse award and funding opportunities available.
