QUB Teaching Awards

QUB Teaching Awards 2016

Nine Teaching Awards were awarded in 2016.

The QUB Teaching Awards 2017 scheme will open in October 2016.  A Briefing Session will be held in January 2017 to provide advice and guidance for potential applicants. The slides from the Briefing Session in January 2016 is available here.

The Teaching Awards scheme was established to encourage and reward the development of learning and teaching and learning support practice, 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.

Information about the Teaching Awards scheme 2016 is available in these Notes for Guidance.  These will be updated for Teaching Awards 2017.
