Gary Poole Distinguished Reviewer Award
A thoughtful, rigorous, and developmental peer review process is essential to the mission and practice of Teaching & Learning Inquiry, the journal of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. This process ensures that we learn from each other, hold each other to the highest standards, and contribute to the growth of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Teaching & Learning Inquiry celebrates the generosity, expertise, insight, and labour of its reviewers by granting an award that recognizes reviewing excellence over the previous three years. To honor Gary Poole,* one of the founding co-editors, a person of integrity and good humor who is careful and kind and incisive, this award was named after him.
The Gary Poole Distinguished Reviewer Award is presented annually at the ISSOTL conference and is selected from articles published in the previous year. Authors may nominate one of their anonymous peer reviewers, and the TLI Editorial Team may nominate peer reviewers based on the award criteria. Awardees receive a certificate and are featured on the TLI website, the ISSOTL blog, and in TLI.
