Master Teacher Award
The University of Saskatchewan recognizes that teaching is one of its primary functions, and, accordingly, it expects its faculty members to strive towards excellence in their instructional responsibilities. Faculty must seek constantly to improve their teaching so our students are given as rich and satisfying an educational experience as possible. At the same time, good teaching must be recognized and rewarded at all levels of the institution. An atmosphere in which excellence in instruction is not only encouraged but also acknowledged in a tangible and visible manner must be created. The Master Teacher Award has been established as one step toward achieving this end.
As part of our commitment to the scholarship of teaching and the teacher-scholar model, the University of Saskatchewan, through a consultation process initiated by the Instructional Development Committee of Council (IDCC), has assessed its responsibility to teaching. The institutional commitment to the evaluation of teaching should be as strong as its commitment to the evaluation of research and implemented with the same rigour. To that end, the Principles of Evaluation of Teaching at the University of Saskatchewan document is intended to provide guiding principles concerning the evaluation processes for teaching.
