Call for Nominations

Helen Patrick, Chair

Dan Hickey, Co-Chair

Deadline: January 11, 2010

Nominations are open for the 2010 Sylvia Scribner Award of Division C of the American Educational Research Association. The award recognizes a program of work by a Division C member that has significantly influenced thinking and research in the field of learning and instruction. In particular, the annual award is designed to honor current research (i.e., within the last ten years) that represents a significant advancement in our understanding of learning and instruction. The recognized work may include, but is not limited to, research articles, paper series, monographs, book chapters, and/or books. This includes collaborative teams as well as individuals.

The award is named in honor of the late Sylvia Scribner. Professor Scribner’s work reflects a wide range of concerns within the field of cognition, particularly learning and instruction. Her research focused on the relationship between cognition and culture. Her work involved innovative mixing of methods, including experimental simulations of everyday cognitive tasks and ethnographic fieldwork. Professor Scribner’s research also cut across disciplinary boundaries, addressed multiple sites for learning and development, and included older and younger learners.

The nominator should send the following:

(1) The complete bibliographic citation of a single publication designated by the nominator as illustrative of the nominee's larger research program and contribution. The publication date of the designated work should be within the last decade (i.e., with a publication date of 2000 or later).

The nominator also should submit a copy of the representative publication. If the publication is a book or monograph, the nominator should indicate which portion of it (approximately 25 pages) should be reproduced for dissemination to the award committee. An electronic version of the representative publication is preferred.

(2) Complete bibliographic citations of no more than 5 additional relevant publications of the nominee (There are no publication date restrictions for these citations).

(3) A Supporting Statement of no more than 500 words.

(4) Vita of the nominee.

The submission deadline is January 11, 2010. Electronic nominations are preferred. Please send 4 separate documents (corresponding to 1-4 above) as MS Word or PDF attachments to Scribner Committee Chair, Helen Patrick.
