The College Sector Educator Award was retired in 2017. It recognized individuals at Canadian colleges and equivalent institutions (polytechnics, cégeps, institutes, etc.). STLHE created this prestigious award to celebrate individuals who promote and support the development of their peers and/or the Canadian college sector with regard to teaching excellence.
The eligibility to apply for a 3M National Teaching Fellowship was changed and it is now open to any individual currently teaching at a Canadian university or college, regardless of discipline, program, level, or term of appointment. All post-secondary institutions in Canada (universities, colleges, cégeps, polytechnics) are included.
