The overall aim of the award is to

  • encourage individual or teams of teaching staff to focus on student learning
  • acknowledge teaching staff teams and/or a particular teaching staff member whose educational contributions have promoted the knowledge development of students
  • support and develop educational collaboration between teaching staff and students, as well as other stakeholders in education

  • The tuition of the candidate contributes to the integration of education and research.
  • The candidate contributes to educational collaboration with other local and global stakeholders.
  • The candidate supports and encourages learning by giving students real influence over their learning process.

It is important that you justify the nomination according to all of the criteria to allow for an overall assessment.

The vice-chancellor will decide on a winner among the received nominees.
