Sample student nomination:
I think Dr. X in the XYZ course qualifies for this award. Dr. X has attempted to incorporate a different approach to enhancing student learning throughout this semester. In particular, Dr. X would provide us with an article to read before class which started to get us all on the same page about a particular topic. She/he would then give us a case scenario to work on in groups, and have each group defend the recommendations they came up with. This occurred multiple times during the semester. I felt this helped promote my own personal learning because not only was I able to apply the information I learned from the article I read, but I was also able to see how my classmates approached the case. Whether the groups had different recommendations or the same ones, there was always something I learned that I did not know before. In addition to learning, I also felt I improved in my communication and teamwork skills with this approach. Dr. X definitely qualifies! Please consider him/her for this award.
