​Excellence in Teaching Award​

This award recognizes an APS member for excellence in teaching plant pathology. Preference will be given to active teachers with responsibility for one or more courses in plant pathology. The major criterion will be formal (classroom) teaching proficiency, as indicated by the development and effectiveness of courses taught. Indicators of pedagogical research and other activities supportive of teaching should be described in the nomination materials. Other supporting material should include a brief description of courses taught and indicators, including students’ opinions, of teaching effectiveness. Recipients receive an award ​and honorarium​ made possible by the Lucy Hastings de Gutiérrez Fund established in the APS Foundation by Lucy’s family and friends.

Fellows are not eligible to be nominated for excellence awards except when the new nominations are for accomplishments different from that on which the Fellow nomination was based, and the new accomplishment has occurred after recognition as a Fellow.
