Nominees will be considered according to the following criteria:

1. Evidence of teaching effectiveness (as represented by student evaluation numbers, student comments, student scores on rubrics, and/or other measurements of learning)
2. Evidence of innovation (as represented by use of GSU resources, integration of work experience, and/or other non-traditional methods of instruction)
3. Evidence of engagement (as represented by level of interaction with students, focus on class design, quality of feedback, and/or other methods of engaging with students)
