Glenn A. Reich Memorial Faculty Award for Instructional Technology

Glenn Reich believed in a humanistic, collaborative approach to instructional technology. He believed that “technology could enrich the teaching and learning process; it could open the doors for new opportunities and new ideas.”

This award was established in 1999 by Lori Reich in memory of her late husband, Glenn Reich, former Director of User Services at Harper College. Glenn wanted to share his love of computers with students and faculty members. He encouraged faculty and staff to invest their energy in the technology that he knew would dramatically affect our world. Glenn believed every academic discipline should expose students to technology and assist them to become more comfortable with it. This award is devoted to realizing and carrying forward that vision.

The Glenn A. Reich Memorial Faculty Award for Instructional Technology will be awarded to a Harper College full-time, adjunct, or retired faculty member (an individual or team) who has actively used technology for the purpose of improving instruction.

There are two $1,000 awards available this year. To be considered for the award, applicants must submit: a description of the instructional technology or technologies they have used or are using, an explanation of how it has enhanced the teaching and learning process, and a description of how they envision its future use.
