AACTE Awards Program: What to Expect
Nominations for the 2016 AACTE awards are open on AACTE’s submission site. But what happens to your application once you submit it?
First, staff will send all complete submissions to the standing committee responsible for overseeing each award:
- Committee on Research and Dissemination: Outstanding Book Award, Outstanding Dissertation Award, and Outstanding JTE Article Award
- Committee on Global Diversity: Best Practice Award in Support of Global and International Perspectives and Best Practice Award in Support of Multicultural Education and Diversity
- Committee on Innovation and Technology: Best Practice Award for the Innovative Use of Technology
- Committee on Professional Preparation and Accountability: Margaret B. Lindsey Award for Distinguished Research in Teacher Education, David G. Imig Award for Distinguished Achievement in Teacher Education, and Edward C. Pomeroy Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teacher Education
Next, each committee reviews the submissions against the guidelines or rubrics outlined in the Call for Entries. Committees’ final decisions must be made by mid-November, after which all applicants will be notified of their award status.
Official announcements of the award winners are embargoed until February, when AACTE issues a press release and posts blog articles about each winner. Finally, all winners are recognized on stage during the general sessions of AACTE’s Annual Meeting, February 23-25 in Las Vegas.
Help us recognize your outstanding programs and achievements! Applications for the Outstanding Dissertation Award are due August 17, and all other submissions are due October 9. Click here to get started, or contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
