In 2002, STLHE created this award to honour individuals who have, over their career, made significant contributions to teaching, learning and educational development in Canadian higher education. The first recipient, Christopher Knapper, was the founding president of STLHE and a member of the Society’s Board of Directors for 20 years.
Call for Nominations
- The award is offered every two years and a call for nominations is circulated to all STLHE members in October of the year in question, and posted to the STLHE and IDO listservs. Any member of the Society may make a nomination.
- The nomination should comprise a brief of no more than three pages, which may include a summary of letters of support received from colleagues. Although additional material may be appended if necessary, the committee’s decision will be made primarily on the basis of the three-page summary.
- Service to the Society will be an important factor considered by the Selection Committee.
- Nominees will normally, but not necessarily, be a member of STLHE.
Nominations will be reviewed by a sub-committee appointed by the STLHE Board of Directors, and comprising one or more past-presidents of STLHE and two other long-serving members of the Society. Each Committee member serves for a minimum of two years.
Nature of Award
The recipient of the award is invited to attend the June STLHE conference, with travel expenses paid, and to make the special “Knapper Award” presentation. In addition the awardee is presented with a citation and small gift and becomes a lifetime member of STLHE.
