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.

GAs and TAs can benefit tremendously from the nomination experience, says GATA Network co-ordinator Laura Chittle.

“The nomination process allows for self-reflection and encourages you to think about your teaching in a scholarly way, thereby guiding future teaching and professional decisions,” she 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 boulos@uwindsor.ca.
