These awards and prizes are designed to recognise and celebrate the contributions individuals and teams have made to enhance the educational experience of our students. They recognise excellence and endeavour in all the dimensions of education, from teaching and course design to learner support, supervision and materials development. They are intended to encourage inquiring, reflective and evidence-informed approaches to educational excellence, including a commitment to inclusivity. The Team Awards acknowledge the fact that achieving positive educational change and outcomes is often the result of collaborative effort between people, including students, sometimes coming together from different areas of the university.
Up to 10 awards will be given out across St George’s, including the four Institutes – Molecular and Clinical Sciences, Infection and Immunology, Population Health and Medical and Biomedical Education – and those who teach and support St George’s students within the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education. We hope to make at least one award in each of these areas of the university.
Award winners who have made an exceptional contributions with the potential for wider impact may also receive a Principal’s Prize. These prizes will be an additional £200 for individuals and £500 for teams.
All award and prize money should be used for educational development and research activity.
Applications should be on the basis of a nomination from a fellow staff member, student or student group. All staff, both academic and professional services, are eligible to be nominated and to apply – as individuals or as teams.
In line with our wish to encourage professional recognition of educational work, we are keen that applicants should hold or be actively working towards a PGCert in Higher Education, Fellowship of Advance HE in any category or a National Teaching Fellowship.
