Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE)

The CATE Award, celebrates and recognises creative and innovative teamwork in learning and teaching that positively impact on the student experience. The Award recognises a team which has enabled a progressive change in practice for colleagues or students at a university/discipline level and possibly even beyond the institution. Evidence of direct student involvement with the team and evidence of dissemination and impact are a central component of the application process. The initiative is managed by Advance HE and is open to UK higher education staff.

The webinar, ‘CATE - the basics and the benefits’, will provide a brief overview of this national award. The event is aimed at staff aspiring to achieve a CATE award and who would like to understand the steps needed to submit a future CATE application. The session will be delivered online by Professor Bob Gilmour, Glasgow Caledonian University on Wednesday 8th July 1-2pm. To book a place, visit course bookings.

To be considered this year for nomination, or for further CATE information contact Dr Joy Perkins, Centre for Academic Development (j.perkins@abdn.ac.uk) before the 1st October 2020.
