Do you know someone whose teaching deserves an award? This year's University Teaching Awards are now open for nominations. Staff and students are invited to submit nominations by noon on Friday 9 February 2018. Detailed criteria, eligibility and nomination forms are available online.
Last year's winners received their awards at a gala awards evening organised in conjunction with the Students' Union. Richard Burke was the winner of the John Willis Award. For Richard, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering: "Winning the John Willis award was very special to me as it represented recognition of the quality my research, teaching and supervision achievements. However, simply being nominated by my Head of Department was a valuable appreciation of the hard work I had done over the previous four to five years". This year's winners will again receive their awards at a awards dinner to be held at the Apex Hotel in Bath in April.
