And, each year, the theme that inevitably shines through in each nomination is the students’ understanding that these instructors “genuinely want us to learn.” 

This year a new, special category has been added: Pandemic Pedagogy. Since March 10, 2020—when the pandemic necessitated online instruction—there have been so many extraordinary contributions to under education. This special category, open to any full-time SAS faculty or staff, or group of faculty and staff, recognizes outstanding work in supporting others during the pandemic in developing instruction that meets the highest standards for online pedagogy.
