Made possible by the generous contributions* of numerous influential SAGE authors and editors, the SAGE Publishing Keith Roberts Teaching Innovations Award helps a group of graduate students and pre-tenure faculty attend the annual American Sociological Association pre-conference workshop hosted by the Section on Teaching and Learning in Sociology.
Read Keith Roberts bio.
Awardees will receive up to $800 in travel funds to attend the ASA Section on Teaching & Learning’s pre-conference workshop held the day before the annual ASA meeting and enrollment in the Teaching & Learning section (assuming ASA membership). New sociology instructors, those who have taught courses at a community college, college, or university for four years or less, are welcome to apply.
A key goal of this award, named in honor of the award’s co-founder and long-time organizer Keith Roberts, is to welcome new sociology instructors into the Teaching and Learning Community. Therefore, instructors from institutions that do not offer much training in teaching will have priority. The award committee will give an additional limited number of awards to new instructors who have already shown leadership in the Teaching and Learning community (e.g., leading teaching workshops, publishing in Teaching Sociology). Those awardees may be asked to help lead portions of the preconference.
The 2019 workshop, Inclusive Pedagogy for a More Just World, will take place on August 9, 2019, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. in New York City, at the site of the ASA conference.
