Annual Teaching Excellence Awards
TEAs are student-led teaching awards that are hosted by the Vice President Education, to recognise the best of Strathclyde's teaching staff. Being student-led means it is solely students who nominate, shortlist and pick the winners. Union staff oversee the process to make sure everything runs smoothly and to ensure fairness, but they aren't involved in the decision making.
The event will take place on Thursday 18th May 2023 in The Venue!

An updated award, from last year's 'Digital Innovator'. Innovative Practises recognises the lecturer who has embraced online spaces, creating innovative and engaging ways to support students in their learning.
This category highlights the most enthusiastic teaching staff who shows incredible passion for their subject areas, as well as bringing their course to life.
Did you receive feedback on an essay that really helped you to improve next time round? Or did the support of a staff member help you achieve your academic goals? This award recognises all the amazing work our teaching staff does to help students academically.
Is there a member of staff that you feel goes the extra mile in their role? This award is for teaching staff who have performed above and beyond normal expectations, someone who has engaged and connected with their students, both new and old,near or far
This award recognises the hard work of non-teaching staff who support students outside of the lecture hall. From registering programme reps to responding to students queries, our departments wouldn be the same without the amazing support staff!
Teaching assistants and tutors play a big role in supporting students in their learning. This award shows the appreciation of teaching assistants and tutors who show exceptional dedication and commitment to ensuring their students receive the best academic learning and guidance.
Distinct from education about sustainable development (which might involve teaching students about issues related to the SDGs), Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) seeks to equip students with the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to fully address complex real-world challenges and create change. Does your lecturer deliver ESD in a range of ways across disciplines and empower you to enact systemic change?
Has a staff member gone above and beyond to develop innovative practice to advance equality, diversity and inclusion? As this is a new category, the criteria is quite broad: curriculm work like organising socially-engaged student projects, innovative changes to make the course more diverse or inclusive, or more practice-based like a staff member's approach to creating inclusive learning and teaching spaces or providing specific support for minoritised students (such as named contacts for trans or care experienced students).
