Teaching Excellence Awards nominations open


By Émer O’Toole, Editor-in-Chief


Nominations for awards recognising the best lecturers and tutors at Strathclyde University have been opened.

In its seventh year, the Teaching Excellence Awards (TEAs) aim to honour academics who are passionate about their subject and actively engage students in their learning process.

Students can nominate academics in three categories: Most Supportive, Most Enthusiastic and Most Innovative. All lecturers nominated will automatically be considered for one of the four Teacher of the Faculty awards and the main prize for Best Overall, awarded to a lecturer who shows outstanding commitment to both teaching and learning.

All recognised lecturers will receive a certificate of nomination with a quote from students about what makes them so excellent. A panel of students and staff of the university will make a shortlist of those nominations that exemplify the most enthusiastic, the most innovative, the most supportive and the best overall teacher.

The winners will be presented with their awards at the Teaching Excellence Awards ceremony on Wednesday the 18th of May 2016.
