You’ve had some awesome teaching and support this year so now’s the time to thank your academic heroes by nominating them for a Teaching Award. Nominations close on 16 February 2018.
The Teaching Awards are your chance to thank the academic and support staff who’ve had the biggest impact on you and can include excellence from courses, teachers, research and dissertation supervisors, students who tutor, personal tutors, and support staff.
There are nine different categories to nominate in so have a think and consider who you’ll nominate and where. This year the awards areas are:
You can nominate by logging into the website via EASE with your student login. You just need to let us know
WHO you are nominating
WHAT School or area they work in, and
WHY you think they deserve to be recognised for a Teaching Award!
As part of the nomination process, you’ll also be asked to write a short comment about why you think they should win - this really helps the Student Judging Panel reach their verdict when deliberating on the eventual award winners.
To learn more, you can check out each of the different award categories on the right of this page.
All nominees will receive a Teaching Awards badge and a congratulatory letter including the anonymised comment you submit. Not only do the nomination comments help them know why they were nominated and what they are doing well but it also 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.
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.
