The Seminar Approach to General Education and Scholarship (SAGES) and the Writing Program are seeking nominations for two awards for excellent writing instruction: The Jessica Melton Perry Award for Distinguished Teaching in Disciplinary & Professional Writing and The SAGES Excellence in Writing Instruction Award.
These awards honor faculty who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to and success in teaching academic writing to Case Western Reserve University students.
The Jessica Melton Perry Award for Distinguished Teaching in Disciplinary & Professional Writing
This award recognizes teaching that has contributed to the development of student writing within academic and professional fields across the university (other than English). Nominees can be tenure-track or non-tenure track regular faculty currently employed in any CWRU school or college.
The award is designed to recognize:
Instructors who have helped their students publish academic/scholarly work;
Instructors/mentors of graduate/professional students; and/or
Instructors of SAGES Departmental Seminars and Senior Capstones (where discipline-specific writing is taught).
The SAGES Excellence in Writing Instruction Award
This award is given annually to an instructor in the SAGES program who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to and success in teaching academic writing to CWRU undergraduates.
Nominees may be at any rank, from graduate student writing instructor through tenured full professor, but they must have provided substantial writing instruction as part of one or more SAGES seminars during the 2021-22 academic year. This award is designed to recognize faculty working in SAGES First and/or University Seminars.
Individuals can nominate a teacher, a colleague or themselves online.
How to nominate
All nominations are due by Friday, April 1. Winners will be honored with recognition by the Writing Program and a monetary award.
