CATE Award for Contributions to Research in Teacher Education

This award has been created to recognize significant contributions to research in teacher education in Canada. The award applies to a body of research and not necessarily to a particular study or publication. Candidates do not need to be CATE members, but must be nominated by a member of CATE. The application must include two additional letters of recommendation from people associated with at least one other institution. However, these people do not need to be CATE members. Criteria for the award include evidence of excellence in research in teacher education through publications, presentations or other contributions, as well as overall influence on the field of teacher education research in Canada and internationally.

Nominators must be members of CATE.

Submission Requirements
Nominators, who must be CATE members, must submit:
1. An initial letter of recommendation from a CATE member outlining the contributions of the nominee and providing evidence of excellence in research and significant contributions to teacher education in Canada and internationally (maximum two pages).
2. The nominee’s curriculum vitae, including relevant publications and presentations throughout this person’s career, and not just from the past five years.
3. Two supporting letters from persons who are able to attest to the outstanding nature of the nominee’s contributions. These individuals do not need to be members of CATE.
