These awards offer the opportunity to gain formal recognition for the development of excellent practice related to teaching, learning or assessment. Nominations for an award provide good preparation for a future application to the annual National Teaching Fellowship Scheme awards and they are excellent evidence for inclusion in an HEA fellowship. The achievement of the award is also a valuable addition to a CV when applying for promotion. Nominees will also be extending the impact and reach of their work by sharing outstanding practice from which other colleagues can learn and many more students should benefit in the future.
The VC’s Awards are open to all Birkbeck staff members, including Research Student Teachers, engaged in teaching and supporting the learning of our students.
Alongside extending the impact and reach of your work, benefits of the VC’s Awards also include the following:
- £500 awarded to individual award recipients
- £1000 collectively awarded to team award recipients.
Applications are now open and the deadline is Friday 6 January 2023, 5pm. For more information and criteria, please visit the Teaching and Learning Connect site. For any questions, please email Stephanie Bass.
