CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
for the Arthur C. Guyton Educator of the Year Award
The Arthur C. Guyton Educator of the Year Award, supported by Elsevier ($1,000 cash prize, complimentary registration to Experimental Biology, a framed, inscribed certificate, and up to $750 in travel reimbursement to the Experimental Biology meeting), recognizes a full-time faculty member of an accredited college or university and member of the APS who has independent evidence of: (1) excellence in classroom teaching over a number of years at the undergraduate, graduate, or professional levels; (2) commitment to the improvement of physiology teaching within the candidate’s own institution; and (3) contributions to physiology education at the local community, national or international levels. The awardee is requested to write an essay on his/her philosophy of education for publication in The Physiologist.
A typical nominee will have shown excellence in teaching and have made significant contributions in student advisement, graduate education, and/or curriculum design and reform at their institution. The activities that distinguish a candidate in the rankings include outreach activities at the state, national, or international level; contributions to education through APS activities; peer-reviewed educational journal articles; and widely disseminated publications, such as commercially produced textbooks, lab manuals, or software.
Nominations Process: Each nominee must be nominated by a member of APS. The nominator must upload a letter of support outlining the qualifications of the nominee no later than November 6, 2015. To upload documents, please visit the APS Award Module at https://www.the-aps.org/awardapps/login/index.cfm. Finalists will be contacted and asked to provide further information.
