QUB Teaching Awards 2018

The QUB Teaching Awards 2018 will open in October 2017.  Updated information will be made available at that time.


QUB Teaching Awards 2017

The Teaching Awards scheme was established to encourage and reward the development of learning and teaching and learning support practices that have led to particularly effective/worthwhile learning. The Teaching Awards Scheme is open to full members of Queen's University staff. Applications embracing a diversity of approaches are welcomed - it is intended that noteworthy examples of traditional methods as well as innovative approaches be recognised by the Awards.

Nine Teaching Awards have been made in 2017.  Congratulations to all the winners and shortlisted applicants.

A Briefing Session was held in January 2017 to provide advice and guidance for potential applicants - the slides from the Briefing Session are available here.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 5 pm on Monday 13 March 2017.  Further information about the Teaching Awards 2017 was made available in the Notes for Guidance
