The Office of Academic Affairs and the Faculty Development Committee invite your nominations for the annual Augsburg University Distinguished Contributions Awards. Augsburg annually recognizes individuals or groups that have made exemplary contributions to creating an engaging academic learning environment through awards for teaching, scholarship, and service. All faculty or full-time staff who have been employed at the university for at least three years are eligible for the awards.
Distinguished Contribution in Teaching – Outstanding teaching encompasses many forms and pedagogies, and is not restricted to the classroom. As such, nominations made in this category should demonstrate the nominee’s active engagement with students, creative approaches to instruction, ability to challenge students, and overall passion for teaching. Up to two awards may be given in this category, one for full-time faculty and one for adjunct faculty (2 courses per term or less).
Distinguished Contribution in Service – Nominations for this award should demonstrate the nominee’s impact on the university, community, or discipline in a substantial and meaningful way. Nominees who impact the lives of students through supportive, thoughtful, and comprehensive mentoring and advising that go beyond the normal expectations of guiding students are eligible for this award.
Distinguished Contribution in Scholarship – Nominees in this category may be recognized for a consistent record of scholarship or a single project. In recognizing multiple forms of intellectual inquiry, nominations should speak directly to both the quality of scholarship as well as its contribution to their discipline, the university, or community.
Use the link below for further information and to find the nomination form.

The March EDTalk premieres Wednesday, March 10 at 3:10 pm.: “Making Your Teaching More Accessible: Easy Captioning of Your Zoom Videos and Recordings” CTL is focusing on accessibility for March! Join Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright for a demonstration of how she *just* learned to add subtitles to her own Zoom teaching videos in a way that takes advantage of Zoom’s new “live transcribe” setting — even when she says things like “activation-induced cytidine deaminase”. This year, EDTalks will be pre-recorded and have a community “premiere” on Zoom hosted by CTL at 3:10 pm on days when there is a faculty meeting. These premieres will end no later than 3:30pm to allow plenty of time to log into the Faculty Zoom meeting early. After the premier, the recording will be posted on the CTL website, along with any resources (if applicable). The Zoom information is linked below (can only be viewed with an Augsburg login).
