The Distinguished Education Excellence Fellowship is awarded to individuals who have been teaching/supporting learning in HE for more than four years and can demonstrate a sustained body of outstanding practices that have impacted significantly on students and influenced the practice of peers within the University. In particular, the individual’s contribution will be directly related to the Educational Excellence themes and priorities within the University’s strategy and will focus on initiative(s) that demonstrates highly effective problem solving, influence, enhancement, or innovation in L&T.
The purpose of the award is to recognise, reward and celebrate those who can demonstrate sustained teaching/ supporting learning excellence and to create a proactive learning community within Ulster.
Up to two awards are normally available and the award of £1000 to successful applicants should be used to support the recipients’ CPD in learning and teaching.
Distinguished Education Excellence Fellows will be expected to share their experience and practice with colleagues at Ulster supported by CHERP. They will be expected to provide ongoing leadership in L&T through involvement in CHERP initiatives and mentoring colleagues.
