Students nominating their best lecturers, tutors and support staff for excellent teaching and support.
The principle is simple – we sit in lectures, labs and tutorials all year long but rarely have the chance to vocalise who we think is an excellent teacher, what we consider ‘good’ teaching to be or how important the support staff are in helping us achieve our degree. Teaching Awards gives us the chance to say how important good teaching is and to reward those lecturers, tutors and support staff who have really made a difference to our university experience.
How does it work?:
Your submission is for a member of staff you think has gone the extra mile in helping you achieve your degree. The submissions are then judged by the Students’ Association, and at the beginning of the following year, we announce the winners and congratulate them with an award and recognition.
The panel judged the submissions on quality of individual submissions rather than overall quantity for an individual. We were interested in submissions detailing why the staff member is considered excellent at teaching, how they have contributed to your learning, and examples of good practice.
If you have any questions, please contact the President (Communications & Democracy)
1. Nominations for awards must be submitted by matriculated students.
2. Awards will be given first and foremost on the quality of nominations rather than the quantity, although this will be given consideration.
4. Nominations must outline the ways in which a member of staff has directly impacted on a student or students having a positive experience at RGU. Evidence of positive and specific teaching practices are encouraged.
5. Submissions should made using the Teaching Awards webpage on the Students’ Association website.
8. A judging panel will meet at the end of Semester 2 to decide which staff will receive awards.
9. The panel reserves the right not to make awards in any given year.
