Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Association (OCUFA) Teaching and Academic Librarianship Awards

Call for Nominations

Deadline for receipt of nominations: May 2015

Each year, OCUFA recognizes outstanding teachers and academic librarians in Ontario universities through awards. Since 1973, OCUFA has presented 376 awards. The recipients are selected by the OCUFA Teaching and Academic Librarianship Awards Committee. Approximately 7 awards are presented.

Teaching, in the context of the OCUFA Awards, embraces virtually all levels of instruction--graduate and undergraduate teaching, continuing education, and faculty development. Similarly, proficiency in teaching may extend well beyond the classroom, the laboratory, or the faculty member's office. Activities such as course design, curriculum development, organization of teaching programs, and other significant forms of leadership are often important contributions to the instructional process. Those who excel in any of these are eligible for the OCUFA Teaching Awards.
