The IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB) is seeking nominations to recognize and honor individuals, companies, and IEEE sections for their contributions to engineering and technical education. The deadline for the 2011 nominations is 30 April 2011. Nominations are sought for these nine awards:
Meritorious Achievement Award in Accreditation Activities—for members whose efforts foster the maintenance and improvement of education through the accreditation process.
Meritorious Achievement Award in Continuing Education—for members who have made contributions to the design, delivery, and support of continuing-education courses and programs in IEEE’s fields of interest.
Meritorious Achievement Award in Informal Education—for members who volunteer as librarians, docents, tour guides, or curators, or who act as technical advisors to, or serve as board members of, aquariums, museums, parks, zoos, or similar settings where teachers, students, and the public can benefit from their professional expertise in science and technology.
Major Educational Innovation Award—for members whose outstanding educational innovations have had a major impact and have been emulated by others.
Preuniversity Educator Award—for current preuniversity classroom teachers, not necessarily IEEE members, who have inspired in students an appreciation of mathematics, science, technology, and the engineering process, and have encouraged them to pursue technical careers.
Meritorious Service Citation—for IEEE volunteers who are past members of the Educational Activities Board or are serving, or have served, on EAB committees (except for current service on the Awards and Recognition Committee) for outstanding and sustained service toward the aims and objectives of the EAB.
Employer Professional Development Award—for organizations that provide continuing education and professional development for their employees, including IEEE members.
Section Professional Development Award—for IEEE sections for their development of outstanding products and services that support the continuing education and professional development of their members.
Society/Council Professional Development Award—for IEEE societies or councils for major contributions to the professional development of their members through outstanding products, services, and support in the areas of lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development.
