Recognize an Instructor

Has one of your instructors this year made a difference in your academic life? Did someone inspire you or keep you going when things got tough?

Consider taking a moment out of your day to thank your instructor. Your submission on the form below will be sent from the Teaching Innovations Office to your instructor. Your message can remain anonymous or include your name, based on your preference indicated on the submission form. With your permission, your comments may also be displayed on our website for the rest of the UNCG community to see.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of this project?

This year has been one like none other in our history. UNCG faculty have dedicated themselves this year to finding new ways to teach their courses including converting courses online, embracing new technology, and exploring new classroom approaches. This project allows students to share their gratitude to their instructors for their work and dedication. 

What is the process for this project?

Students can use the form above to recognize any instructor from Spring, Summer and Fall 2020 semesters. Deadline for submitting your form is the end of the day, November 13, 2020. Submissions are reviewed by the staff of the Teaching Innovations Office. A staff member may reach out to the student who submits the form to ask for clarification. Emails are sent to the instructor shortly after the form is reviewed to both the instructor and their Department Chair. If the student and instructor gives us permission, the Teaching Innovations Office can display your comments to your instructor on our website. 

What if I want to say thanks, but I don’t want my name mentioned? Is that possible?

Yes, if you indicate on the form that you want to stay anonymous, your instructor will not see your name. The email to the instructor is sent from the UTLC office email account and your email address is never listed. 

When I submitted my form, I asked for my comments to be displayed on your website. When I looked at your website, I didn’t see my comments. What could be happening?

When we send your comments to your instructor, we ask your instructor if it’s OK to display this message on our website. Your instructor can decide to keep your comments private and not displayed on our website. 

Can I use this form to complain about one of my instructors?

This is not the proper venue to use to complain about your instructor. Any form that contains derogatory comments towards an instructor will be not sent to that instructor nor displayed on our website.
