Senate Awards 2013-14

Nominations are now invited for the 2013-14 Senate Award Scheme for excellence in learning and teaching in the areas of:

  • Sustained excellence
  • Early career
  • Collaborative activities
  • Departmental leadership in learning and teaching

The Scheme rewards those who are inspirational, or who demonstrate an exceptional contribution in the area of learning and teaching, and/or supporting and enhancing the student learning experience. Recipients become a fellow for life.

As well as those who work directly with students, the Scheme welcomes nominations for colleagues who indirectly support students, for example by designing and planning learning activities, creating learning materials, or through the strategic development of learning and teaching.

If you’d like to nominate a colleague, Professor Penny Simons, Faculty Director of Learning and Teaching, is happy to have an informal discussion about the nomination, and offer help with the wording of cases. Email her at

The closing date for nominations is 26 March 2014.
