Reward and recognition
University Teaching Prizes 2013
Each year, the University awards a number of prizes to individual staff or teams for outstanding work in teaching and/or learning support. Applications are now invited for the 2013 awards.
Please note that this year, for the first time, an application form is to be used.
The form can be found here: University Teaching Prizes Application Form
For all prizes, the following general rules apply:
• Applications may be made by individuals or teams; nomination is not required
• Individuals may not apply for more than one prize
• Previous applicants are welcome to resubmit a revised application
• Selection panels may divide each prize into two or more awards, at their discretion, or decide not to award the prize
• Advice on applications can be obtained from Faculty Directors of Learning and Teaching, Directors of Graduate Studies, the relevant Faculty link tutor in Academic Practice Team at UELT, or from senior colleagues within your own Faculty or School.
• Prize money is made available for individual professional expenditure (e.g. conferences, professional development programmes, materials, equipment) by the prizewinner(s), through a University cost code.
Previous prizewinners may also be able to offer advice (a list of previous winners can be found at http://www.kent.ac.uk/teaching/reward/previous-winners.html).
The University Teaching Prizes will be awarded by the Vice Chancellor at a lunchtime ceremony on Thursday 3rd October 2013.
Faculty Teaching Prizes
Each Faculty awards an annual prize of £5,000. The only criterion for the Faculty Teaching Prizes is evidence of outstanding achievement in relation to teaching (which can include any aspect of the teaching role, and may be for individual or team work). In all cases, applicants are expected to provide evidence of their impact on students and/or colleagues.
Applications should be no longer than 4 pages, and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in the Faculties Support Office by 5pm on 10th May 2013.
Barbara Morris Prize for Learning Support
