TLT Impact Award

Annually celebrating the work and accomplishments of Penn State faculty members whose work transforms education through technology.

About the Award

In 2016 Penn State’s Office of the Vice Provost for Information Technology established the TLT Impact Award. This award, given annually, recognizes faculty members who use technology in a way that transforms education. Their achievement can be one noteworthy contribution or a series of contributions over time. Past winners have found ways to innovatively use technology and showcase its power to improve teaching, learning, and scholarship at Penn State and beyond.

Presented each year at the TLT Symposium, the TLT Impact Award winner receives a commemorative medal, a $3,000 cash award, and an invitation to serve as a TLT ambassador. Additional support will be given to the award winner by TLT so that they can further the impact of their work, including opportunities to share their efforts more broadly with the University community.

To have been selected by my peers as an innovative teacher who has contributed to the greater good at Penn State is one the highest honors of my academic career. Penn State is filled with creative, daring, and driven teachers who make impactful teaching their mission and I am honored to be among them.
