COVID-19 Remote Teaching Awards

The transition to remote teaching in response to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in extraordinary efforts by all of our professors and instructors, and the many people who support them. Some were truly exceptional in what they were able to achieve. 

In order to recognize these outstanding individuals, the University of Alberta awarded a total of 30 COVID-19 Remote Teaching Awards distributed amongst full-time faculty members, full-time Academic Teaching Staff (ATS), and other full-time employees who contributed to transforming remote teaching environments after the pandemic began. These individuals exemplified the University of Alberta’s values - excellence in teaching, creativity and innovation, delivering an intellectually rewarding education environment for all learners, and, above all else, an unwavering commitment to serving the public good in the face of adversity and unprecedented challenges.

Each award came with $1,000 as a token of our appreciation.
