Important Information for Awards

About Judging Panel, Late Submissions and Appeals Policies

  • Assessment of nominations will normally be made by a committee of five members: one active member of the Teaching and Learning Committee, the Pro-Dean or Deputy Pro-Dean of Teaching and Learning (Chair), at least one past award winner, and a representative from another Faculty’s T&L Committee or the Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL).
  • The committee assesses each candidate according to the quality and strength of the case made in their nomination. There is no fixed quota for determining how many applications for the Excellence in Teaching Awards can be successful.
  • Incomplete and/or late submissions of applications cannot be accepted.
  • Materials are NOT returned to applicants but shredded after the judging panel’s decisions are finalised. Please keep a complete copy of your materials should you wish to consult them again.
  • Applicants who wish to appeal against the decision of the committee should note that appeals are considered only on the basis of a problem or fault in the nomination process.
