You can still submit an article for the McGraw-Hill and Teaching Professor (Magna Publications) Scholarly Work on Teaching and Learning Award

McGraw-Hill and The Teaching Professor (Magna Publications, Inc.) have joined forces to create an award (
http://www.teachingprofessor.com/award) that recognizes exemplary scholarly work on teaching and learning. The first award with its accompanying stipend of $1,000 will be given at the 2009 Teaching Professor Conference (http://www.teachingprofessor.com/award), June 5-7 in Washington, D.C.

To be considered, the piece of scholarly writing must be at least 1,500 words and must have been published after 2006 in a discipline-specific, a cross-disciplinary pedagogical periodical, or a more general higher education publication. The piece of scholarship may address any topic related to college-level teaching and learning. Preference will not be given to a particular kind of scholarship. It may be a research report (quantitative or qualitative), a piece that describes development and/or implementation of a new teaching strategy or assignment, an article that offers advice based on research or experience or both, or an inspirational essay or article that takes a position with respect to an aspect of instruction or a teaching-learning issue. Articles may be nominated by readers or authors.

Submitted articles will be blind reviewed by a panel which will include published authors, editors and faculty familiar with the pedagogical literature. Among a variety of criteria, they will be looking for an article with potential to positively impact the instructional practice of the college teaching community. A complete list of criteria, other award details and submission procedures may be found at:
www.teachingprofessor.com/award (http://www.teachingprofessor.com/award).

Plans are underway to disseminate the winning article at The Teaching Professor Conference, in The Teaching Professor newsletter and beyond.
