The Master Teacher Award is presented to a full-time faculty or staff member with a minimum of three years full-time service to the University. The recipient must have scholarly knowledge of his or her subject matter and present the material in an organized and effective manner. Instructors are nominated by students. Nominees then submit an application including a questionnaire about what they feel is important as educators and what attributes a master teacher would have. Finalists submit a 30 minute video recording of their classroom teaching and are interviewed by a committee of five to ten undergraduates with an advisor from the Student Alumni Connection, which selects the winner. The award is presented by the Student Alumni Connection and the BGSU Alumni Association.
The award was originally created by the Alumni Association in order to demonstrate that superior teaching is a high priority for the University and to provide an incentive for excellent teaching.
