About the Award
The Cal Poly Learn by Doing Award was established to recognize faculty members who demonstrate excellence in the scholarship of teaching and advancement of Learn by Doing pedagogy. The awards acknowledge scholarly research that goes beyond descriptive examples of Learn by Doing projects and recognizes how faculty are directly contributing to the pedagogical understanding and practice of Learn by Doing.
Faculty self-nominate for the award. Individual and team (collaborative) applications are welcome for both awards. Team applications may include Cal Poly students and non-Cal Poly researchers. The Learn by Doing Scholar Award applications are reviewed by one tenured faculty member from each college and the library.
The Learn by Doing Scholar Awards were established in 2014 and are financially supported by the Library Dean’s Advisory Council.
The primary applicant must be a current, active member of the Cal Poly faculty (i.e. member of collective bargaining unit 3) and must be active at Cal Poly for at least one quarter during the academic year in which they apply (for example, faculty who are on leave for an entire academic year will not be eligible for that year).
Faculty members at all ranks are eligible as long they have completed at least three years of full-time service or its equivalent at Cal Poly. Faculty members who have previously won either award are not eligible.
Applications must be focused on scholarly inquiry into Learn by Doing practices that goes beyond mere descriptive examples of Learn by Doing. The successful applications will present a compelling definition of Learn by Doing and clear evidence as to how the scholarship contributes to the understanding and practice of Learn by Doing.
More generally, successful applications will demonstrate quality and intellectual merit, creativity, clear methodology, and meet all application requirements. Download full details on the application and scoring process.
