Nominate a Respected Colleague for an AACTE Award
The annual AACTE call for award nominations is currently open. As members of the AACTE Committee on Professional Preparation and Accountability, we have the honor of overseeing the three Professional Achievement Awards. Please take a moment to nominate someone deserving for the 2017 Margaret B. Lindsey Award, David G. Imig Award, or Edward C. Pomeroy Award.
These awards honor individuals who have made a meaningful contribution to our profession with their research, policy leadership, or other service to the community. Certainly, you know someone whose tremendous impact on educator preparation deserves recognition. We hope you will take a moment to help us develop a robust pool of nominees for these awards:
- The Margaret B. Lindsey Award for Distinguished Research in Teacher Education recognizes distinguished achievement in research, by an individual or team of individuals, over the last decade that has had a major impact on the field of educator preparation. Lindsey was a longtime professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, whose own writing and research had a tremendous and lasting impact on the field. Recent recipients include Jeanne Wilcox of Arizona State University, Guofang Wan of Ohio University, and Richard Schwab of the University of Connecticut.
- The David G. Imig Award for Distinguished Achievement in Teacher Education recognizes an individual for distinguished achievement in the field of policy and/or research related to policy in educator preparation. The career achievement acknowledged by this award must take place in the formulation, implementation, research, or analysis of educator preparation policy. The award is named for AACTE President/CEO Emeritus David G. Imig, who led the Association from 1980 to 2005. Recent recipients include Mary Brownell and Paul Sindelar of the University of Florida, Gary Galluzzo of George Mason University, and Mary Diez of Alverno College.
- The Edward C. Pomeroy Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teacher Education recognizes outstanding contributions to educator preparation, either through distinguished service to the educator preparation community or through the development and promotion of outstanding practices in educator preparation at the collegiate, state, or national level. It is named for Edward C. Pomeroy, who was AACTE’s executive director from 1952 to 1980. Recent recipients include Ena Shelley of Butler University, Pam Grossman of the University of Pennsylvania, and Deborah Ball of the University of Michigan.
