Teaching Awards 2018-19

Success at the Division’s Teaching Excellence Awards 2019

Staff from across the Social Sciences Division gathered on 17 June to celebrate the winners of the Division’s 2019 Teaching Excellence Awards. Seven academic colleagues were awarded a Teaching Excellence Award in 2019 across three categories. 

The Social Sciences Division run a teaching excellence recognition scheme each year. The scheme formally recognises the outstanding contribution to teaching and learning and the academic development of students shown by colleagues across the Division. The scheme has two strands: (i) unfunded Teaching Excellence Awards recognising an exceptional contribution to education by colleagues at any career-stage; (ii) funded Teaching Development and Enhancement Project grants for projects focussed on enhancing the learning experience for students at all levels. 

Professor Sarah Whatmore, Head of the Division said of the achievement: ‘It is wonderful to see so many colleagues from different career-stages and different disciplines being recognised in this way and to hear multiple examples of the great work undertaken to enhance the academic experience for students across the Division. A huge congratulations to those who won in their categories.’
