Posted on: 21 December 2006

CAPSL is pleased to announce a call for nominations for the 2006-07 Provost Teaching Awards. Funding for up to three Provost’s Teaching Awards is available for this academic year. The purpose of the Provost’s Teaching Award Scheme is to promote teaching as a scholarly activity and to reward those who have made an outstanding contribution in the pursuit of teaching excellence. The scope of this initiative is broad, covering all aspects of teaching, learning and assessment and aims to:
– Provide recognition for excellent teaching
– Raise the profile and status of curriculum development, teaching, learning, and assessment, as important activities in College requiring high level expertise
– Encourage lecturing staff to reflect critically on their teaching practice
Each award is to the value of €5,000. At least one will be an Early Career Award for nominees with not more than five years full-time third-level teaching experience at the time of nomination (or equivalent as determined by the sub-committee).
If an applicant meets the existing criteria and additionally demonstrates in their application “evidence of sustained commitment to teaching excellence, supporting learning and it is clear that the scholarship of the nominee has been inspirational and/or influential among academic colleagues within or beyond the institution” the nominee may also be considered for a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Nominations should be submitted by Friday 19th January, 2007.
