Academic staff invited to apply for Research informed Teaching Awards

Staff are invited to submit applications for the 2016/17 Research informed Teaching Awards.

The annual awards recognise and celebrate academic staff who have made a sustained and outstanding contribution to the promotion of research informed teaching at the University which has impacted positively on the overall student learning experience.

To be eligible to apply for the award, staff members must:

  • Have at least four years’ experience as a Loughborough University academic, during which time they have engaged actively in both teaching and research
  •  Are judged by their School to have a track record of high quality in teaching and research performances
  •  Can demonstrate how their research-informed teaching practice has impacted positively on the quality of the Loughborough student learning experience
  • Have gained the support of their School for their application to go forward to the University selection panel

To be considered, the individual initially needs to discuss a potential application with a member of the Senior Management Team (SMT) within their school. The SMT will provide an informal sounding board to consider whether the individual meets the eligibility requirements.

Applicants must submit their application to the School AD(T) or Operations Manager, dependent upon their School, by 5pm on 10 March 2017. Applications will then be considered for the University Selection Panel.

The University awards a maximum of four awards per academic year. Successful award winners are allocated a University budget of £1000 to progress their research-informed teaching over the course of the following academic year. Candidates are required to liaise with the Centre for Academic Practice to agree how to further their work in support of research-informed teaching.
