UCL Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching
2012-2013 Submissions Information
Professor Malcolm Grant 18th March 2013:
"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 (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."
Who can make a submission?
Deans, in consultation with Heads
of Departments, are invited to put forward nominations for Provost’s Teaching
Awards in any of the award categories.
Who can be nominated?
Submissions can be made for staff in any post at UCL - Professor, Lecturer, Research or Teaching Fellow, Lab Technician, Librarian, Learning Technologist, Administrator etc. – since the overriding consideration is that they make a significant contribution to the advancement of learning at UCL.
Please note that only paid employees of UCL can be nominated.
A panel convened by Professor Anthony Smith, Vice-Provost (Education), will determine a list of staff to be recommended to the Provost for the receipt of awards.
In all categories, the panel will wish to see clear evidence of at least one of the following benefits to UCL:
- Furtherance of UCL’s commitment to education for global citizenship, social responsibility, leadership, internationalisation of the curriculum;
- Innovative developments in assessment, learning and teaching within and/or across disciplines;
- Innovative use of new technologies in teaching and learning;
- Engagement in the development of interdisciplinary programmes and transdisciplinary student projects (especially those which include industry, NGOs and public engagement);
- Innovation in activities which help students to learn and to develop world class skills: tutoring, peer-assisted learning, study skills, student involvement, addressing special needs and accessibility issues etc.
