Call for submissions: CHA's Teaching Prize

Published on February 22, 2022

The CHA Teaching and Learning Committee is pleased to call for submissions for its teaching awards that honour excellence in teaching with an emphasis on the use of primary sources. These unique post-secondary teaching awards for history instructors recognize the importance of teaching across departments and universities and respond to CHA members that have supported a greater recognition of teaching and learning among members. 

REMEMBER the deadline for nominations for the CHA Teaching Awards is 31 March, 2022. 

These awards will be announced at the Annual Meeting of the CHA that will be online this year. The committee is also grateful to the CHA Council that has added a monetary prize of $250 for each prize to the winners.

FOUR (4) winners will be chosen: two in the category of “Early or Alternative Career”: one in Canadian history and one in other than Canadian history and two in “Open Career State”: one in Canadian and one in other than Canadian history.

These awards are open to any post-secondary instructor teaching in any geographical, thematic, or temporal field in historical studies who has a record of excellence in emphasizing student engagement with primary sources in their courses. A recognition of teaching extends beyond full-time faculty and is open to all members who teach history. These awards are not just for Canadianists, not just people teaching courses in and for history departments. The deadline for applications is 31 March, 2022 and specific details can be found below and on the CHA Prizes website

The Nomination Package (details below) is flexible. There are no mandatory requirements but rather examples of inclusions we will take into account.

Please consider applying or bringing this to the attention of a colleague who you think deserves to be recognized for their teaching excellence.
