Trinity staff awarded for excellence in teaching
Posted on: 12 June 2023
The recipients of the Trinity Excellence in Teaching Awards & School Awards for Teaching Excellence were announced by Provost Linda Doyle at a ceremony in the Provost's House on Thursday 8th June 2023.
The Trinity Excellence in Teaching Awards recognise and celebrate those who have made an outstanding contribution in the pursuit of teaching excellence.
This year saw a change in how Trinity awards Teaching Excellence, with a new prestigious School-based Teaching Excellence Award. Earlier this year, Trinity students, staff and alumni had the opportunity to submit nominations, and panels were convened to select the winners.
Provost Linda Doyle said: “The Trinity Excellence in Teaching Awards recognise those who educate the minds of the future and push boundaries. The awardees are hugely dedicated to their teaching and show great care for their students. They are very inspiring as they constantly strive to do even better and are so innovative in their approach to teaching.”
