CATE Award for Contributions to Research in Teacher Education




This award has been created to recognise significant contributions to research in teacher education in Canada. The award applies to a body of research throughout an individual’s career, not necessarily to a particular study or publication. Candidates must be nominated by a member of CATE but do not need to be CATE members. The application must include two additional letters of recommendation, one of which must be from a referee associated with at least one other institution. However, the two referees do not need to be CATE members. Criteria for the award include (1) evidence of excellence in research and significant contributions to research on teacher education over time through publications, presentations, or other outcomes, as well as (2) evidence of overall influence and impact on the field of teacher education research in Canada and internationally.


Nominator(s) must be member(s) of CATE.


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


All nomination materials should be sent to CATE/ACFE President,

Dr. Leyton Schnellert Associate Professor Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia
