Teaching Awards

As part of a larger effort to celebrate and showcase teaching excellence at the University of Ontario institute of Technology, the Teaching Awards program has been completely redesigned. The scope of the awards are now greatly expanded in an attempt to better capture the breadth of the types of teaching and teaching innovation demonstrated by our instructors. Students have a greater impact on awards nomination and selection, and are an important part of the teaching celebration.


Congratulations to all of our nominees and winners!

The new UOIT Teaching Award Ceremony was held on March 28, 2018. Attended by well over 100 faculty, staff, and students, we were excited to honour the outstanding teaching that happens at UOIT each and every day.
