The Cromwell Award for Innovation in Teaching. Excellent teaching requires faculty members to rethink and redevelop their own approaches to teaching and learning over the course of their careers. The Cromwell Center for Teaching and Learning seeks to sustain and encourage Washington College’s instructors on this journey with the annual Cromwell Award for Innovation in Teaching. The Cromwell Award for Innovation in Teaching is awarded annually to an instructor for exceptional accomplishments during the two previous academic years. Areas of focus for this award include: using new instructional technologies, revamping traditional technologies in creative ways, applying novel approaches to instruction, innovating in curricular development, or engaging students in the learning process in new ways. Awardees receive $1500.
