Collaborative Award for teaching excellence logo

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’, was 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 PowerPoint slides from the session delivered by Professor Bob Gilmour, Glasgow Caledonian University are available here.
