ECE Division Distinguished Educator Award
This Award is conferred by the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Division for significant contributions not only to ASEE, but also to the profession of ECE education.
The Award, which is given annually to an individual who has shown evidence of vision and contribution to ECE Education, consists of a commemorative plaque to be presented at the Business Meeting of the ECE Division at the ASEE Annual Conference.
Nominees will be evaluated based upon two equally-weighted criteria:
Outstanding Teaching Effectiveness. Nominees must demonstrate evidence of excellence in the education of undergraduate and/or graduate students in the classroom or through supervision of independent study projects. This can be demonstrated by such evidence as standardized student evaluations along with letters from students or former students (not more than four).
Educational Scholarship. The award recipient should have made significant contributions to ECE education that go beyond his/her own institution. Examples of such evidence include development of instructional methods of materials (textbooks, instructional software, assessment instruments), along with the associated publications in refereed scholarly journals and conference proceedings. This evidence may be supported by the applicant’s teaching dossier, reprints of papers and up to four supporting letters, three of which should be outside the candidate´s institution.
Pertinent nomination information should be submitted by the nominator, including a curriculum vita describing the nominee´s professional achievements to the Awards Chair. Nominators must accompany the submission with a short citation. Resubmissions are the responsibility of the nominator. Nominations are accepted until April 15th.
