The Gertrude Cox Award
The Gertrude Cox Award for Innovative Excellence in Teaching and Learning with Technology has been created to honor the creative pedagogy of NC State's faculty and technical staff and their work in integrating new technologies into effective teaching strategies. The award was endowed in Fall 2002 and named for "The First Lady of Statistics," who came to NC State in 1940 to establish the university's distinguished Department of Statistics.
First awarded in 2001, The Gertrude Cox Award seeks nominations of NCSU faculty members who have made creative contributions to teaching, learning, and technology at NC State during the previous academic year. Self nominations are encouraged as well as recommendations from the academic community.

All submissions must be posted to the nomination website by 8pm Friday, February 15, 2013. Comments in support of a nomination can be entered when looking at the current nominations and will be accepted through February 28, 2013.
The Gertrude Cox Awards ceremony will be on Thursday, April 11th, 2013 at the McKimmon Center, beginning at 2 pm for people to view the projects. Award presentation will begin at 2:30 pm.
