Augsburg recognizes distinguished contributions to teaching and learning
The Center for Teaching and Learning annually recognizes exemplary work by faculty and staff in support of teaching and learning at Augsburg College. Up to three awards are available annually reflecting the breadth of contributions important for a quality liberal education. Each award carries a stipend of $1000, recognition and celebration.
Awards are based on evidence of student learning and student satisfaction provided by students, colleagues, and documentation. Awardees will be acknowledged at the Honors Convocation on Friday, Apr. 17 and at other events. Opportunities for winners to share ideas with the campus community will take place throughout the year following the award.
