This award is for a faculty member in the Wake Forest College who is still in the early part of their career. The award was established in 1971 and renamed in 1986 in recognition of the generosity of the late Wilbur Doyle (’48), who endowed the prize to honor his philosophy professor, A.C. Reid. The Reid-Doyle Prize is also supported by the Alumni Council and the Alumni Association. Recipients are announced at the Faculty Meeting in May.
Wake Forest College Junior Faculty Members who hold the rank of Assistant Professor or who were promoted from Assistant to Associate Professor in the last academic year are eligible for this prestigious award. These faculty members must be tenure strain (this includes Professors of the Practice).
Nominations for the Reid Doyle Teaching Award are submitted by chairs, program directors, or senior faculty (with chair approval) from within the nominee’s department or program. Chairs should consult the senior faculty in their departments to confer about nominations. Nominations are limited to one nominee per department per round.
In one document with clear delineations, nominations should include:
- A letter written or endorsed by the chair (maximum 3 pages)
- Nominee’s CV
- A brief description of how teaching is evaluated in the department
- Excerpted highlights from narrative comments from student evaluations (no more than 2 pages)
- Evidence that peer or chair evaluation of teaching materials (syllabi, assignments, quizzes, exams, etc.) confirms that course requirements are suitably demanding and grading is sufficiently rigorous
- Quantitative summaries of student evaluations, if available
Nominations are submitted to Sarah Frederick (email@example.com) in the Office of the Dean of the College.
A committee composed of all previous award winners and representatives from the Office of the Dean of the College reviews the nominations and makes a selection.
