Award selection process

A committee  that is chaired MIS awards coordinator selects the above three award recipients. The committee is chaired by the MIS awards coordinator and includes at least one faculty, administrative, current student, and alumni representative and the department chair. Normally, the committee is comprised of previous recipients of the award.

MIS Researcher of the Year

Recognizes outstanding MIS-focused scholarly research publications appearing in print in the prior year. The primary award criteria is a scoring system for publication of high quality MIS-centric peer-reviewed journal articles. (Criteria updated 2/2010)

Eligibility: Full-time faculty of Temple University

Guidelines

  • Published articles qualify only if Temple University is identified as the author’s affiliated organization.
  • Published articles qualify only if they have an MIS focus. If the MIS focus of an article is not obvious then the awards coordinator will rely on the author for clarification.
  • Only publications with a publication date of the previous calendar year are considered for point scoring (e.g., for the 2010 award, publications in 2009 are considered); the publication date is determined by when the article is in print (e.g., the year used in scholarly citations).
  • Articles qualify for Tier I as long as they meet all other criteria and the journal is a Fox A-list publication.
  • If one or more faculty published a qualifying Tier I journal article, only those faculty are eligible for the award. If only one faculty member published a qualifying Tier I journal article, they are the award winner, regardless of the point totals of other faculty members. When two or more faculty have qualifying Tier I journal articles, award determination will proceed based on point totals among only those faculty.

Scoring

  • Qualifying articles published in MISQ or ISR receive 6 points.
  • Qualifying articles published in all other Tier I publications receive 5 points.
  • Qualifying articles published in a non-Tier I publication appearing on the Fox target journal list receive 3 points.
  • Qualifying articles published in any other refereed journal receive 1 point.

Tie-Breaker

If there is tie in point values from qualifying journal articles, the awards coordinator will form an ad-hoc committee to identify the winner. This committee is instructed to consider the following additional factors in selecting the award winner: other scholarly output (e.g., books, conference proceedings, presentations), scholarly impact of eligible work, best paper awards, scholarly grant applications and awards, and any other activity that promotes the research profile of the Fox MIS Department.

Faculty Teaching Award

Recognizes outstanding teaching in the prior year (e.g., the award given at the 2010 ceremony is for courses taught during the 2009 calendar year). (Criteria updated 11/2009)

Eligibility: Full-time faculty of the Management Information Systems department who taught 2 or more courses in the previous calendar year.

Criteria: The full-time faculty member with the highest average teaching evaluation score for the previous calendar year is identified. The teaching evaluation score is calculated as the average of Q8 (”The instructor taught this course well.”) and Q11 (”I learned a great deal in this course.”) for all courses taught by the instructor in the previous calendar year. If there are multiple faculty members whose average score are within 0.1 of the highest score, then the winner of the award is decided by an ad-hoc committee. This committee consists of the Department Chair, Fox IT Awards Coordinator, and other faculty as appropriate. The ad-hoc committee is instructed to consider:

  • Innovative teaching, including new curriculum development, technology use, novel curriculum and changes to model or delivery method.
  • The types of courses and course load of each faculty member (e.g., class size, difficulty and level of classes).
  • The score of Q8 (”The instructor taught this course well.”) by itself.
