On March 11th, 2020, he was awarded the "Outstanding Adjunct Faculty" designation for Academic Year (AY) 2019-2020 from the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC).
About UMGC "Outstanding Adjunct Faculty" designation:
Charged by President Miyares in Spring 2018 to develop a mechanism to "recognize UMGC's most outstanding faculty," they have developed a rigorous selection process to reward excellence in the classroom in alignment with the "3 Rs" academic affairs has identified as the most important faculty teaching behaviours. These are Relevancy, Responsiveness, and Relationships.
The criteria for the inaugural award of this designation were derived from three questions on the student end-of-course evaluation survey, all of which a faculty member can control directly. Using these questions, they computed an average index score based on a three-year average (calendar years 2016, 2017, and 2018) to ensure a broad basis for identifying outstanding adjunct faculty. For this first year, they recognize those faculty members with an index score in the top 10% of scores (out of a possible total score of 5.0).
The "Outstanding Adjunct Faculty" designation confers the following benefits:
• Priority offering of an academic year 2019-2020 annual agreement (this offer was issued to you in Spring 2019)
• Priority staffing, now managed via the Faculty Profile Management System (FPMS) that launched in Spring 2019
• Recognition via UMGC channels including Engage and the annual Global Faculty Appreciation and Awards Week
• Additional one-time pay of $1,000
