ISSOTL is dedicated to fostering inquiry and disseminating findings about what improves and articulates post-secondary learning and teaching in any discipline. We also recognise the importance of engaging and supporting the emerging generation of SoTL scholars. The ISSOTL Awards for Best Student Presentation/Poster will acknowledge work that best represents the purposes, goals, and vision of ISSOTL and adds new knowledge, contributes innovative research, and/or provides insightful contribution to the field by a student presenter.
ISSOTL will recognize a student (or students) presenting the best student-led presentation and a student (or students) presenting the best student poster at the annual ISSOTL conference.
At the conference, members of the ISSOTL Student Awards Committee will circulate among the concurrent sessions with presenters who asked to be considered for the award in order to adjudicate the sessions (the criteria for judging are attached). The award will be presented at the closing of the ISSOTL conference. Applicants are encouraged to attend the closing session but will still be eligible for the award. The award includes a certificate, acknowledgement on the ISSOTL website, and a one-year complimentary membership to ISSOTL.
Applicants must be:
- Undergraduate or Graduate students who are currently enrolled in a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctoral program at a post-secondary institution or who were enrolled in a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctoral program at a post-secondary institution in the most recent academic year (2017-2018).
- Listed as primary author(s)/presenter(s) on their ISSOTL conference presentation or poster.
- Must be presenting research that reflects their own work, not that of an advisor.
- Presenting at the annual ISSOTL conference.
Applicants are expected to attend the conference closing keynote, where the results will be announced.
