The purpose of the award is to recognize truly outstanding work and creativity in teaching, in directing student research, or in the general educational process (lectures, publications, etc.) among ceramic educators.

The Nominating Process

Any interested individual or group may nominate a person. A personal history and three-page description of teaching efforts and consequences of this work will be used for the judging.

The suggested three-page description might include descriptions of typical ceramic courses taught, course evaluation data, descriptions of courses or labs developed by the individual, data on number of these supervised, a publication list highlighting books, reviews, or tutorial articles, descriptions of educational programs developed, and educational service within the broader ceramics community. Attachments might include letters of support by colleagues and current or former students.

A nomination will remain active for five years.

A committee made up of the two immediate past recipients of the award and the current President-elect of the Education and Professional Development Council, who will act as chairman of the committee, will select the winner.
