Research-informed Teaching Awards now open for applications

The Research-informed Teaching Award (RiTAs) is a prestigious annual award which has been introduced by the University to recognise and celebrate Loughborough academics who have demonstrated excellence in research-informed teaching. 

In 2018 there were two RiTAs awarded:

  • Dr Mark Everitt (School of Science), under the category ‘expertise in pedagogic research’ for his work on disseminating the outcomes of the Quantum Systems Engineering (QSE) research project and in the category ‘expertise in the use of the learning experience to help develop students as researchers’ for developing the learning experience associated with teaching quantum physics in order to develop students as potential researchers. 
  • Dr Mike Waring (School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences) under the categories ‘expertise in pedagogical research’ and expertise in curriculum design for his work on developing a research-informed project to develop assessment literacy, feedback and design in students and staff, and for leading its rollout across the School. 

Please note applications for RiTAs must first be sent to your School (Teaching or Operations Manager), no later than 25 March 2019. Once this has been approved, your application must reach the Centre for Academic Practice by 26 April 2019.
