The University of Aberdeen seeks to encourage and support staff to enhance their higher education teaching through sharing examples of effective and impactful practice. This involves promoting a culture of learning from others, evaluating practice and disseminating the impact and outcomes of our teaching to colleagues.
The University is keen to gather and recognise a collection of examples of teaching practice that cover a range of activities across all disciplines and levels which have been evaluated to establish their impact on the student learning experience.
There is the opportunity for staff to present a teaching case study to compete for internal awards which recognise excellence in teaching. Annually, a Panel of senior educators from across the University will select one case study for the Principal's Teaching Excellence Award. Up to three further case studies may be recognised by the Panel for commendation. The prize money awarded is for the continuation of good teaching practice. Applications can be submitted by an individual or a teaching team.
Results will be kept confidential and announced formally as part of the wider university Excellence Awards.
