Technology and Engineering Teacher Educator of the Year Award

The Technology and Engineering Teacher Educator of the Year Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Council to recognize individuals with established records of service to the CTETE and to the Technology and Engineering education profession.

CTETE Outstanding Research Award (DEADLINE: December 31, 2024)

This award is presented to a member or members of the CTETE who have provided significant service to the profession through the publication of research and related scholarship in the preparation of Technology and Engineering Education teachers or enhancement of professional practice in technology education. 

Silvius-Wolansky Outstanding Publication Award (DEADLINE: December 31, 2024)

The Silvius-Wolansky Award for the Outstanding Scholarly Publication in Technology and Engineering Education is co-sponsored by the G. Harold Silvius Foundation and the Council on Technology and Engineering Teacher Education (CTETE). The award is presented annually by the CTETE to an author (or co-authors) whose scholarship has enhanced the Technology and Engineering Education profession. 

Gerhard Salinger Award for Enhancing I-STEM Education Through Technological/Engineering Design-Based Instruction (DEADLINE: December 31, 2024)

This award is presented annually to an individual or team of collaborators whose work has exemplified, promoted, investigated, and/or enhanced teaching and learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) through the effective application of technological / engineering design activity. The award was created in honor of Dr. Gerhard Salinger, program officer at the National Science Foundation from 1989 to 2014, whose work to promote the use of engineering design activity and whose advocacy for technology and engineering education has widely influenced STEM education. The award is open to classroom teachers, university educators, school administrators, and others whose contributions are consistent with the selection criteria.
