The CHA's Excellence in Teaching with Primary Sources Award

The Teaching and Learning Committee on the CHA Council is pleased to announce the inauguration of the CHA’s first annual Teaching Award

This annual prize seeks to recognize post-secondary instructors teaching in any geographical, thematic, or temporal field in historical studies who have a record of excellence in emphasizing student engagement with primary sources in their courses in effective, critical, sustained, and, possibly, innovative ways. Effective teaching about the question of primary sources and how people today should contend with them are the central aspects of this award. 

·      Our definition of “primary sources” should be understood in the broadest terms and includes visual, aural, verbal, material, digital, and memorized or remembered items.

·      This prize does not preclude the consideration of historiographical teaching (i.e./ approaching secondary and tertiary sources as primary sources).

·      This prize does not preclude, and indeed encourages, pedagogy that fosters critical approaches to historical empiricism and “the archive” as embroiled in past and present political struggles.

TWO (2) winners will be chosen, annually, for this prize: one in the category of “Early or Alternative Career” and the other in “Open Career State.” Winners will be announced at the 2020 CHA Annual Meeting (at the Annual CHA Prize Ceremonies). The deadline for nomination packages will 31 December 2019.  Nomination packages must be sent to teaching-enseignement@cha-shc.ca on or before the deadline.  For information about nomination package content and judging criteria, see below.

1) Early or Alternative Career Award

·      open to any post-secondary part-time or contract instructor, adjunct professor, or early career (0-5 year), untenured full-time instructor/professor who can

o   demonstrate excellence in teaching with primary sources across a minimum of THREE (3) courses (note: this includes the same course being taught three times, even if all three iterations happened in the same semester)

·      the courses do NOT have to be taught out of a history department but should feature an ongoing historical component to them

·      this category is not open to emeritus faculty

·      people can nominate themselves for this award or be nominated by a peer or department/unit chair 

·      nomination packages can be up to 15 pages long, exclusive of syllabi and the nomination cover page, and must be submitted as a single pdf file
  

Nomination packages may include (this list is not exhaustive or mandatory, just meant to offer examples):

·      a 500-word statement from the instructor outlining and explaining their approach to teaching with primary sources and the three courses (minimum) with which they are applying;

·      a letter of support from the department chair or other full-time faculty member in which the instructor has taught who has witnessed the instructor’s teaching with primary sources and can provide a detailed qualitative assessment of the instructor’s teaching effectiveness;

·      one or more course outlines/syllabi, complete with details of the number of people in the class, assigned readings, and the structure of assignments;

·      testimonies from students who were registered in one or more classes about the teaching effectiveness of the instructor, ideally focused on engagement with primary sources;

·      a detailed assignment from a syllabus that showcases primary source engagement and how this was assessed by the instructor;

·      a detailed lesson plan with a paragraph or more reflecting on the success of the plan

·      formal teaching evaluation reports, or information culled from them (note: this is not mandatory and the adjudicators will be made aware of the numerous critiques that exist about the validity of teaching evaluations)   

Adjudication criteria:

·      teaching how to be critical about primary source engagement

·      depth of focus on primary sources in specific sessions or with specific assignments

·      consistency of focus on primary sources throughout a course and/or throughout 3 courses

·      “focus on primary sources” can mean teaching about: “silences” in the archive, the range of sources available, where to find sources and how to work with them, historical or archival theory especially via specific primary source examples, and/or assignments that incorporate the critical use of primary sources

·      other criteria taken into consideration may include: ability to incorporate a focus on primary sources across a range of courses (i.e./ from low-enrollment seminars to high-enrollment survey courses); ability to teach about a range of types of sources; innovation (factoring in what this might mean for different types of courses); evidence of student satisfaction and teaching effectiveness; the incorporation of non-written, non-English, non-Western, non-modern sources in effective ways. 

Nomination packages can be up to 15 pages long, exclusive of syllabi and the nomination cover page, and must be submitted as a single pdf file. Packages should be emailed to teaching-enseignement@cha-shc.ca . The due date for packages to be received is 31 December 2019. Winners will be announced at the 2020 CHA Annual Meeting. 

2) Open Career State Awards
