Ernest L. Boyer International Award for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Technology

This award is named in honor of the late Ernest L. Boyer, former Chancellor of the State University of New York and U.S. Commissioner of Education. One of the world's leading educators and visionaries, he came to the presidency of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in 1979 and served in this role with great distinction until his death in 1995. He was named Educator of the Year by U.S. News & World Report in 1990 and in 1994 was awarded the Charles Frankel Prize in the Humanities, a presidential citation.

The award honors the world's most highly creative men and women who have contributed significantly to teaching, learning, and technology in higher education. Nominees for the award are chosen in institution-wide searches and have contributed in creative ways to teaching, learning, and technology at their own colleges and universities. In addition, their contributions must have broad, significantly positive effects on student learning, motivation, and creativity beyond their own departments and institutions.

An international panel of distinguished faculty reviews all nominations for the award and selects the winner, who is honored at the International Conference on College Teaching and Learning. The award was first presented at the 8th International Conference on College Teaching and Learning in 1997. After a two-year hiatus, the award was reinstituted at the 11th International Conference on College Teaching and Learning in 2000 and has become an annual event.
