Swansea Teaching and Course Awards

Teaching and Course Awards 2019

The 2018/19 academic year was the start of the Swansea Teaching and Course Awards, a set of College nominated awards to recognise outstanding an contribution to teaching and learning / course design and delivery.

The whole suite of awards consisted of:

  • College Teacher of the Year (one per College)
  • Institutional Teacher of the Year (just the one, each year)
  • Course of the Year (New Course)
  • Course of the Year (Use of TEL)

The nomination and selection process starts in March and culminates with an evening awards ceremony in September, where the winners are announced and presented by PVC Professor Martin Stringer.
