CHAS Teaching and Learning Awards 2020
In December, a panel comprised of faculty and staff across the five schools of the College was pleased to review applications to the 2020 Teaching and Learning Award Scheme. The high standard of the applications demonstrated once again the continued excellence in teaching, learning, assessment, and student support which exists across the College. It is particularly marked that this continues despite the many challenges we have all faced over the past ten months.
In the event sixteen individual winners in the Teaching Excellence Category Team and three team winners in the Outstanding Contribution Category were selected for awards.
A sincere congratulations to all of the winners.
It is important also that we also acknowledge the hard work and activities of all those who were nominated by students and colleagues, irrespective of whether they went on to submit a formal application for a College Teaching Award, as well as the students and staff who took the time to nominate individuals and teams for an award. We also recognise the exceedingly high calibre of all the applications this year, as in previous years.
We aim to hold a workshop showcasing some of the awardees and their activities later in the Trimester.
The University awards will be announced at the end of January. I would like to also recognise the contribution of Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning, Associate Professor Sue Rackard, and Deputy VP Associate Professor Jonathan McNulty to this process.
