Teaching Awards

Nominate your teaching heroes!
The 2016-17 Teaching Awards winners and runners-up were announced on 27 April at the Teaching Awards Ceremony. In these pages, you can see lists of all nominees for the past five years and learn more about the trends in students' nomination comments!
Who are the terrific teachers, super support staff, splendid supervisors and tremendous tutors who have made your studies take off? Nominations for the 2017-18 Teaching Awards will open from 1 - 31 August to allow postgraduate students and students taking summer courses to nominate.
Nominate your academic heroes by logging into the website via EASE with your student login details, then click on one of the award categories at 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. The nomination comment helps 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.
After the nominations closed on Sunday, 26 March at midnight, a student panel judged the winners, and 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 here
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 professional and administrative 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.
