Andreas Baur (2014 - 2015)

I would like to nominate Dr. Baur because he goes above and beyond his call of duty to teach students as much material as possible within a given semester. He expects his students to work diligently and hard but is also caring and makes time to make sure the student truly understand the material. Dr. Baur carefully monitors his students and learns about them in a professional manner and often stops anything he is doing when a student comes to him for help. He is very polite and courteous to students and staff. He always goes above and beyond his call of duty with the students. His passion for the education of the students is deserving of this award.

  • Ability to engage and inspire in students independent and original thinking.
  • Active involvement in and guidance of student research projects, both undergraduate and graduate.
  • Advising students with personal attention and care.
  • The capacity to reflect on action so as to engage in a process of continuous learning as it pertains to teaching and learning.

Application Process

1. Cover Letter (1-2 pages):

The most useful cover letter does more than list the contents and reiterate the letters of support. The cover letter should make a clear and persuasive case for why the Faculty Development committee should give the nominee the award by identifying the nominee’s strengths and talents in the areas listed under the Selection Criteria.

2. Teaching Philosophy

3. Nominee’s curriculum vitae 

4.One artifact and a description of how that artifact demonstrates the nominee's achievement in one of the areas listed in the selection criteria.

  • Ability to engage and inspire in students independent and original thinking.
  • Active involvement in and guidance of student research projects, both undergraduate and graduate.
  • Advising students with personal attention and care.
  • The capacity to reflect on action so as to engage in a process of continuous learning as it pertains to teaching and learning.

For example, below is how one nominee analyzed and reflected on student evaluation data which demonstrated capacity to  reflect on action and engage in a process of continuous learning:

5. Five Letters of Support

  • 2 peers
  • 2 students
  • 1 Dean or Department chair

6. In March, the Faculty Development Committee will review the materials. Three members of the committee will independently score the application  materials using this Rubric. The scores from the teaching observation and scores from the materials review will be added to make up the final score. The applicant with the highest score will be selected to receive the award.

The awardee will be notified prior to the Spring Faculty Awards Banquet, when the name of the recipient will be announced to the greater Fairmont State.
