Provost's Teaching Awards

I am delighted to invite nominations for the 2015–16 Provost’s Teaching Awards.

The Provost’s Teaching Awards recognise and reward UCL colleagues who are making outstanding contributions to the learning experience and success of our students. They celebrate excellence in teaching and showcase the leadership of our staff within UCL and nationally.

The award ceremony will now have a new home, as part of the keynote for the UCL Teaching and Learning Conference which will be held on April 19th 2016 at the UCL Institute of Education.

The criteria for this year’s awards are designed to ensure that we recognise staff whose teaching and/or leadership in education is of a consistently high quality and also those who invest particular effort in a range of activities which support students’ learning, such as developing better ways of giving feedback and methods of assessment that transform the learning experience of our students.

This year’s awards are made in three categories:

  • Individual Teaching Award (certificate plus salary bonus of £2,500 before tax)
  • Award for Team Collaboration and Achievement in Teaching (certificates plus £5,000 per team before tax)
  • Leadership in Education to recognise individuals or teams who have exceeded the typical scope of their role (prize amounts as above).

The Provost’s Teaching Award Winners will be joined by the winners of the UCLU-organised Student Choice Teaching Awards. I encourage all interested staff and potential sponsors to come to see the awards during the keynote and to keep the whole day available for the conference.

The deadline for submission is January 8th 2016.

Please also be aware that the application process has changed: submissions information can be found here.
