Teaching Excellence Awards 2017

University College Cork is committed to excellence in education and theTeaching & Learning Awards Scheme at UCC is the longest-established scheme of its kind in Ireland. This year, for the first time, PFH sponsors the President's Awards for Excellence in Teaching. These awards recognise staff who have made an outstanding contribution in the pursuit of teaching excellence through innovative and creative forms of teaching, learning and assessment. In particular, the purpose of the awards is to encourage work that is designed and carried out to improve student learning and student outcomes, which can include course design and implementation and/or research and enquiry into teaching, learning and assessment. 

Excellence in teaching can be demonstrated in many ways, and there are very many examples of excellent teaching in University College Cork. A variety of criteria are used to assess excellence in teaching including ability to engage students and improve student learning, the use of innovative pedagogies and technologies, research of teaching and assessment approaches and dissemination of good practice in teaching.
