Awards



Smaldino & Herring Teacher Leadership Award


Sharon Smaldino and Mary Herring have long believed that leaders need to think outside of the box and take responsibility for the greater good. They also believe that outstanding professionals may not acknowledge their own leadership capacity and role within the field of teacher education and educational technology. Leadership pathways open to individuals through mentoring and support, thus  it is important to advance other’s leadership potential through recognition and support. This award focuses on leadership development and promotion by helping nascent and emerging Teacher Education Division (TED) scholars participate more fully in current and future leadership roles.
