There have been over 350 submissions so far, with nominations coming from those teachers influence the most, their students. SAITSA Vice President Academic Kimmi Nguyen says “As busy students sometimes the time isn’t taken to recognize all the good done by instructors,” but the award not only puts the spotlight on stellar teachers, but also shines on SAIT’s sense of community along with school spirit and pride.
The award is presented to one instructor in each school, with a list of qualities present as a criteria for nominees. They must possess things such as being sympathetic, outstanding organization, embracing diversity and fair testing and grading.
Nominations for the award end at midnight on March 1st.
