2019 teaching excellence award winners unveiled
Fifty-four new National Teaching Fellows and 15 winning teams in the Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence are announced by Advance HE today (5 August).
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) and the Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) showcase the outstanding impact of individuals and teams who teach or support learning in UK higher education, recognising their success and providing a platform to share the learning from their practice
Alison Johns, Advance HE’s chief executive, said, “Congratulations to all our 2019 winners of these two prestigious, national awards.
“Becoming a National Teaching Fellow or winning CATE team is a huge achievement. It can be truly life-changing. Creating ambassadors for innovative and impactful teaching who are valued by institutions and colleagues, and who can set in motion change and enhancements to make a really positive impact on student experience and outcomes across their institution and beyond.
“Advance HE looks forward to working with the winners to help to disseminate their work for the benefit of all.”
Dr Ben Calvert, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of South Wales and Chair of the 2019 Teaching Excellence Awards Advisory Panel, said, “These awards really are the pinnacle of reward and recognition in teaching and learning.
“The 2019 winners are rightly proud of their achievements and I am sure they will continue to share their knowledge as individuals and teams so that their institutions, colleagues and the wider higher education sector can benefit from their expertise.”
Winners will receive their awards at a special ceremony on 16 October in Manchester.
