Oxford Teaching Awards are given either to individuals or to teams as a public acknowledgement of excellence in teaching and learning. There are two main types of award: personal awards, and grants to fund projects aimed at improving teaching and learning. A well-considered project proposal is seen as evidence of commitment to teaching excellence. We have collected together some examples of projects that have been supported in previous years: the amounts made available for projects have varied between £1k and £5k, and potential applicants are asked to seek further advice from their divisions.
Awards are offered not only to teachers but also to other staff (for instance administrative and technical staff, and librarians) who work to support teaching: please see the details for the individual schemes.
Details of the scheme for 2013-14 will be published here shortly.
