Awards and Good-Byes!

DON’T FORGET: The deadline to nominate yourself or someone else for the Kairos awards is February 15! There are three awards:

  1. Graduate/Adjunct Awards in Teaching, Research, or Service [three different awards, all of which come with a $500 prize courtesy of Bedford/St. Martin’s],
  2. John Lovas Memorial Academic Weblog Award, and
  3. Best Webtext Award.

The criteria for each is linked above, so nominate away!

Finally, Kairos says a sad farewell to Deb Balzhiser, who stepped down as Communications Co-Editor in September to focus on tenure and her new house. She did amazing work while she was with us, including completing an in-house communications assessment—a project that helped me shape my communication patterns with staff more effectively. She had also worked extensively with Co-Editor Erin Karper on projects such as the awards. We will miss her and wish her all the best! (A new Communications co-editor will be announced in February.)
