Past recipients of the TATP Teaching Excellence Awards

In 2015, the TATP launched the first-ever TATP award specifically for graduate student Course Instructors! This award recognizes one graduate student whose outstanding work as a sole-responsibility Course Instructor shows evidence of educational leadership, meaningful contributions to course and curriculum development, and impact on student learning.

In each award year (May 1 – April 29), one Course Instructor Award will be offered. The successful candidate will receive a monetary award and a certificate. All shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend the University of Toronto’s annual Teaching & Learning Symposium. The Symposium, hosted by the University President, is a full-day event showcasing innovative teaching research and effective teaching practices, and is an event reserved for U of T faculty members, librarians and appointed staff. The shortlisted candidates will participate as Special Guests.

Preference will be given to Course Instructors who have held more than one appointment.
