Teaching Awards

teaching awards - nominate

The 2017-18 Teaching Awards are now open for the summer! Click on one of the categories on the right to get started...
Postgraduate students and students taking summer courses at the University of Edinburgh can submit nominations for splendid supervisors, super support staff, and terrific teachers who have supported your studies this summer. Nominations will be open until 31 August, and the 2017-18 Teaching Awards will re-launch on 1 November.
Nominate your academic heroes by logging into the website via EASE with your student login details, then click on one of the award categories on the right to learn more about that award and write your short nomination comment to thank the best staff across the University of Edinburgh. You just need to let us know who you are nominating, what School or area they work in, and - most importantly - why you think they deserve to be recognised for a Teaching Award!
All nominees will receive a Teaching Awards badge and congratulatory letter including the anonymised comment you submit. The nomination comments help them know why they were nominated and what they are doing well, and it helps the Students' Association and the University better understand what you think excellent teaching and student support means. Your nomination comments will be kept anonymous and will be used for quality enhancement and research purposes.
A Student Judging Panel shortlists Teaching Award winners and runners-up each year, based on the quality of teaching and student support evidenced in students' nomination comments. Our 2016-17 winners were announced at the Teaching Awards ceremony on Thursday 27 April 2017. See photos from last year's event on our Facebook page, and check out our lists of all nominees from previous years.
About the Teaching Awards:
Edinburgh University Students' Association was the first in the UK to offer student-led Teaching Awards. Great teaching is what makes your university experience really take off, and we want your help to celebrate the best of the teaching on offer at the University of Edinburgh. Nominations are your chance to thank the academic and support staff who’ve had the biggest impact on you. Courses, teachers, research and dissertation supervisors, students who tutor, personal tutors, and support staff are all eligible for recognition in the Students' Association Teaching Awards. 
About the Teaching Awards Research and Sharing Best Practices
Edinburgh University Students' Association analysed all anonymised student nomination comments from a previous academic year to better understand and share best practices in excellent teaching and student support.
