The Provost said: "We are once again inviting nominations for this year’s Provost’s Teaching Awards. These recognise and reward colleagues who are making outstanding contributions to the learning experience and success of our students. We have excellent teaching at UCL and the awards, now in their seventh year, provide the opportunity to showcase the leadership of our staff within UCL and nationally.

"The competition will be overseen by Professor Anthony Smith, Vice-Provost (Education), and managed by the UCL Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT). There will be up to 10 individual teaching awards and two team awards (for outstanding collaboration and internationalised department).

"I am delighted also to announce that this year UCLU have established the Student Choice Teaching Awards. These are entirely student-led and the awards will be made at the same ceremony as the Provost’s Teaching Awards in July. Further details of the scheme can be found at Student Choice Teaching Awards and I encourage all students to participate."

The deadline for submissions is Monday 13 May 2013.
