Each year, NACTA recognizes two of the top articles from the NACTA Journal and one top teaching tip. These awards are named after three of the past editors of the NACTA Journal – E.B. Knight, Jack Everly and Bob Gough. Winners are determined by the Journal Awards Committee, Crystal Allen, Chair, from University of Illinois. This committee reads and rates approximately 48 manuscripts – a difficult task. Here are this year’s winners who will be recognized at the 2015 NACTA Conference, June 16 – 20 at the University of Georgia.
2015 E.B. Knight Award goes to Clinton D. Stevenson and G. Keith Harris from North Carolina State University for the article titled "Instruments for Characterizing Instructors’ Teaching Practices: A Review," published in the June 2014 NACTA Journal, pages 102-108.
2015 Jack Everly Award goes to Christopher M. Estepp from Sul Ross State University, Karla P. Shelnutt and T. Grady Roberts from the University of Florida, for the article titled "A Comparison of Student and Professor Perceptions of Teacher Immediacy Behaviors in Large Agricultural Classrooms." This article was published in the June 2014 NACTA Journal, pages 157-164.
2015 Bob Gough Teaching Tip Award goes to Roger Brown and Tammy Stephenson, University of Kentucky for the article titled "Guiding Principles for Teaching with Technology."
