Provost's Teaching Awards 2016-17



Many thanks for your nominations for this year's awards 2016-2017.  The winners will be announced in summer 2017. The prestige of the award reflects the value placed by Trinity on promoting teaching as a scholarly activity and  on enriching the learning opportunities for all our students.  All members of Trinity academic staff, including support staff in teaching roles, are eligible for nomination.  However, candidates must be on permanent contracts, indefinite duration contracts, or contracts of more than one year in duration that do not expire before April 2017.  

This year the scheme is in two parts: nominated candidates are invited to submit an application form and two peer review reports; short-listed candidates proceeding to the final stage will be asked to submit a short 20-minute teaching activity of their choice, which has been filmed.  This process encourages critical reflection on teaching practice. 

The Provost’s Teaching Awards seek to reward colleagues who have made an outstanding contribution in the pursuit of teaching excellence. They recognise staff who are creative in their approaches to teaching and learning and share best practice across College.  They also provide an opportunity to encourage staff to consider scholarly, research-based approaches to course design, delivery and assessment, and they reaffirm that curriculum development, teaching, learning, assessment and evaluation are important activities in College which require high level expertise.

Last year 98 students, staff and alumni nominated teachers or colleagues who have inspired them during their time in Trinity.  On 25th May 2016 , three Provost’s Teaching Awards were made.  Five shortlisted nominees also received special commendation, reflecting the very high standard and quality of the applications. Please see our archive for all previous winners of this award.
