7th Annual CCASTD Dr. Deborah Colky Workplace Learning & Performance Student Award
CCASTD is now accepting applications for the 2013 Dr. Deborah Colky Workplace Learning & Performance Student Award. The $1000 cash prize recognizes a learning & performance, training & development, or human resource development student.
The Dr. Deborah Colky Workplace Learning & Performance Student Award was established to honor the legacy of Dr. Deborah (“Deb”) Lavin Colky, Ed.D., published author, esteemed colleague, professor, and beloved mentor at Roosevelt University and her efforts to support students and the transformation of the learning profession.
This CCASTD $1,000.00 cash award recognizes a student who shows excellent potential in the Workplace Learning & Performance (WLP) profession. Award recipients historically exhibit many of Deb’s qualities, including enthusiasm and patience that encourages personal growth and skill development of those around them. In addition, the committee is interested in applicants who are effective and efficient practitioners, passionate about organization development, people-centric, and, who like Deb, are humanistic.
Each year, one recipient is honored at the annual CCASTD Holiday Party which takes place in early December during ASTD Employee Learning Week.
During the party, the Student Award recipient is presented with a one-time cash award of $1,000.00, a commemorative plaque, a one year membership to CCASTD, and the opportunity to have one article published in the professional magazine Training Today.
The Award requires the recipient’s commitment to contribute time to the local community, in Deb’s name, by actively participating in events that promote raising visibility of the workplace learning & performance and the Chicagoland Chapter ASTD (CCASTD) through the end of December 2014.
Eligibility requirements are simple – If you are enrolled in a degree program that is related to the field of workplace learning and performance, are planning a career in the field, exhibit many of Dr. Deb Colky’s qualities as listed above, and reside in the Chicago area, you are eligible to apply.
