The Maryland Society of Educational Technology has announced its call to nominate educators for its annual awards program. The three types of awards honor an Outstanding Educator, Outstanding Leader, and Outstanding Higher Education Professional using technology.
“Each year we continue to get many amazing educators across Maryland nominated for one of our awards. This year we decided to add the Outstanding Higher Education Professional award to really place a spotlight on the work our institutions of higher education (IHE) are doing,” MSET President Dr. Brian Cook explained as more and more higher education professionals are joining the organization. “It was the right timing and we’re excited to see the nominations come in.”
Phase one of the Award Program is the nomination window, which is open now through February 15, 2023. An individuals can nominate an educator in any of the three categories on the Awards Page of the MSET Site. Either the nominee or the nominator must be an MSET member.
In Phase two, a nomination packet will be sent to the nominee and the nominator. Nominators and nominees will work together to complete the nomination packet. The nominator will be responsible for writing the nomination statement based on the artifacts that the nominee provides. The nomination packet is due by April 15, 2023.
Winners are surprised at their place of employment in the Spring! Award recipients are given opportunities to participate in MSET business meetings, serve as featured speakers, and have their work highlighted. Each of our winners will receive a banner, a certificate, a complimentary registration for the Common Ground Conference, and a one year paid MSET Membership.
