ITEA Dan Perantoni Teaching Award

The ITEA Dan Perantoni Teaching Award will be awarded yearly to one individual beginning with ITEC 2016. The Nomination form will be available on the ITEA website. The portal for submitting all nominating materials will be administered by the ITEA web editor.

The Vice-President/President-elect will be in charge of accepting the nominations and, with the help of the web editor, administering the examination of nominee materials and the voting process by the Board.

All current members of the ITEA Board of Directors will have the opportunity to review all submitted materials for each candidate and will cast a ballot for one individual during the approved timeline for each award.

During the biannual ITEC, the winner will be announced formally at the awards ceremony. During the regional ITEC years, the winner will be announced in the program and appropriate live venue of each regional ITEC (except for any regional ITEC held before ballots are cast). That winner will also be recognized at the next ITEC awards ceremony.

All submitted materials become the property of ITEA and will not be returned or acknowledged.

The ITEA Board of Directors reserves the right to eliminate candidates with incomplete material submitted or withhold the award in any given year if no suitable candidate is found.
