QUB Teaching Awards

QUB Teaching Awards 2016

The QUB Teaching Awards Scheme 2016 will open in November 2015.  The application forms and Notes for Guidance will be made available at that time.  The scheme was established to encourage and reward the development of learning and teaching practice, and activities that support learning and teaching practices, that have led to particularly effective/worthwhile learning.

The Teaching Awards are open to all full-time, part-time and Honorary 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.
