The Kimble First-Year Teaching Award, named in honor of professor emeritus Dan Kimble, is jointly sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs, the Graduate School, and the Division of Undergraduate Studies, and administered by the Teaching Engagement Program (TEP). This award is designed to recognize outstanding teaching performances by graduate employees (GE) teaching for the first time at a post-secondary institution, either as first-time section or lab leaders or first-time sole instructors or co-instructors, while maintaining a strong academic record. Two awards of $500 each are distributed annually.
The award acknowledges a GEs investment in professional development. Recipients of this award must demonstrate their commitment to excellence in undergraduate education through participation in UO faculty development services, teacher trainings, and workshops and classes which are open and available to all instructors free of charge. Full day teacher trainings, offered by the Teaching Engagement Program (TEP), satisfy this requirement for first time teachers. These trainings provide basic teaching skills and provides an opportunity to practice teaching and receive feedback. Other comparable UO teacher training sessions may qualify. If you did not attend training through TEP, please submit a description of the teacher training you attended, including the number of hours and curriculum for the training.
All UO GEs who meet the criteria described above, and who are teaching during the current academic year are eligible to apply for this award.
