Alberta also serves on both the President’s Advisory Council and the International Advisory Council for Teachers College. The Prize supports the production of a web video to highlight original and innovative work of a junior faculty member at Teachers College. All untenured members of the faculty in tenure-line appointments are eligible to compete for the prize by submitting an article, book chapter, paper, or other original product appearing during the previous year.
