A significant number of Institute staff have been nominated for the 2014 Student Choice Teaching Awards reflecting the Institute's commitment to teaching excellence and student support.

The UCLU Student Choice Teaching Awards celebrate outstanding teaching and recognise those that support students in their learning at UCL.  The awards are completely student led – students determine the award categories (Outstanding Teaching, Outstanding Support for Teaching, Outstanding Personal Support and a new category this year, Outstanding Researcher Development), set the criteria, nominate the potential awardees and decide who wins the awards.

The nominees from the Institute of Archaeology for the 2014 awards (making up 16% of the overall nominations) are:

Outstanding Teaching

(13/100 overall UCL-wide nominations)

Outstanding Support for Teaching

(4/16 overall UCL-wide nominations)

Outstanding Personal Support

(6/30 overall UCL-wide nominations)

Outstanding Researcher Development (New for 2014)

This new award celebrates members of staff who help research students reach their potential as well as those who demonstrate the essential balance between providing support and fostering independence.

(4/23 overall UCL-wide nominations)

Congratulations to all concerned! Awards will be made at a special ceremony in June at which the Provost’s Teaching Awards will also be announced.
