Dean’s Awards for Innovation in TeachingThe Dean of Health Sciences in 2015 launched the Dean's Awards for Innovation in Teaching. The spirit of this award is to encourage teaching innovations within the Faculty of Health Sciences, where the outcomes will be shared with colleagues across the Faculty and beyond. The innovation could be a new way of encouraging learning, an artefact or a new method of delivery.
Dean’s Research Initiatives FundThe Dean's Research Initiatives Fund is specifically designed to support new and innovative research that will enhance Trinity College's and the Faculty of Health Sciences' ability to compete for large-scale, interdisciplinary, single- and multi-investigator extramural awards. It aims to advance the research priorities of Trinity College's Strategic Plan 2014-2019, raise the national and international profile of the University and increase receipt of Horizon 2020 and HRB awards, as well as other funding sources. The Dean's Research Initiatives Fund awards investigators and collaborative research teams with seed funding that provides the foundation necessary to secure extramural funding for cutting edge, innovative and transformative research.
Dean of Health Sciences Award for Outstanding Teaching in Professional PracticeIn 2018 the Faculty of Health Sciences announced its inaugural Dean of Health Sciences Award for Outstanding Teaching in Professional Practice. This award was developed to recognise the significant contribution of professionals who do not hold appointments with Trinity to the delivery of teaching to our undergraduate and postgraduate students. Each of the Schools within the Faculty of Health Sciences has a long tradition of working with our clinical and allied health colleagues to educate students across all of our programmes, ensuring that our graduates career-ready from the moment of graduation. This award seeks to recognise the valuable contribution of such colleagues and to highlight those exceptional individuals who excel in teaching and who continually encourage an ethos of excellence in clinical teaching.
