OATE Martha Alcock Outstanding Research/Scholarship

The Awards Committee of OATE would appreciate your nomination of an outstanding example of research or scholarship produced by an Ohio teacher educator. The quality of research and scholarship in teacher education in Ohio was greatly influenced by Martha Alcock and it is our intent to recognize her by honoring others who have worked to further our knowledge about the field. OATE presents this award(s) in anticipation that such recognition will stimulate research to: (1) further the development of teacher education; (2) disseminate related information; and (3) expand the knowledge base relative to teacher education.

The winner will receive a plaque and recognition at the Spring OCTEO awards dinner, and a free membership in OATE for next membership year.

The nominations must be submitted by a current OATE member(s). Nominations are limited to two from each institution. Please make sure that your nomination packets are complete before submitting, since several nominees have been disqualified due to incomplete materials.  

We hope you will assist us by reviewing the enclosed criteria and submitting at least one nomination in conjunction with a local administrator to be post-marked by February 15.
