Awards Committee is seeking nominations for JDS Achievement Awards. The date by which nominations should be received is February 15, 2016. A list of past JDS Award recipients is available on our website here.
The Awards Committee has put together the following criteria and invites nominations for either of the awards:
Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement
The Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement will be awarded to the individual who, in the judgment of the committee, exemplifies, over a lifetime of work, the Deweyan tradition of connecting theory and practice. Each year, the award will recognize: a scholar-practitioner who, in the Deweyan tradition, connects the worlds of theory and practice in promoting the development of democratic citizens; or an exceptional explicator and interpreter of Dewey?s philosophy and educational theory.
Award for Outstanding Achievement
The Award for Outstanding Achievement will be awarded to those individuals who, in the judgment of the committee, have most strongly exemplified the Deweyan tradition of connecting theory and practice. Each year, the awards will recognize significant achievements in scholarship and/or in social, cultural, or educational practice accomplished within the two previous calendar years (January, December).
Any member may nominate a candidate for either of the JDS awards, and members are free to self-nominate. A nomination must be sent to John Covaleskie, chair of the nominating committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a letter explaining how the candidate qualifies for such an award, taking into consideration the specified criteria.
