As part of a three year study we have collected and analyzed data regarding the impact of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship through focus groups, a national survey, and the collection of archival material. Throughout our study, we maintain a focus on how this award has evolved over time, the impact on the individual, institution, the STLHE community at large, and the broader Canadian context. In this presentation we will highlight findings from our national survey that targets 3M Fellows, educational developers, faculty, students, and administrators. In total we had over 1000 individuals from across Canada respond to the questionnaire and during our session we will provide highlights and share how the 3M national teaching fellowship program makes a difference to Canadian higher education. Specifically, we address whether award-winning teachers in departments and across institutions continue to make significant contributions to learning and teaching after receiving the award? What impact have the almost 300 3M National Teaching Fellows had, if any, on Canadian higher education? And how would one know? We share our example by identifying the types of data that would describe and assess its impact on the quality of teaching and learning in Canadian higher education.
