Nominations open for graduate and teaching assistant awards

The Centre for Teaching and Learning is calling for nominations for this year’s GATA Awards, recognizing the contributions made by graduate and teaching assistants to the University’s learning environment.

The categories for nomination are:

  • the GA and TA Awards for Educational Practice and
  • the GA/TA Award for Educational Leadership.

The impact of the awards extends beyond the recipients, says teaching and learning specialist Michael Potter.

“These awards are a means of inspiring those who may have thought such excellence was beyond their reach and those who may not have known that such achievements were a possibility for ‘mere’ GAs and TAs,” he says.

Details — including criteria, eligibility, and the nomination process and forms — are available on the centre’s website. The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. May 22. Direct questions and comments to Pierre Boulos at
