Awards for Teaching Excellence

Excellent teaching is at the heart of the University's commitment to professional, creative and vocational education.

These awards aim to encourage and support staff initiatives in developing and disseminating innovative teaching so giving all DMU students an excellent learning experience. 

Awards will be made each year to academic staff across the University who can demonstrate current teaching excellence or propose future teaching innovations.

The suite of awards is part of the Vice Chancellor's initiative to give a higher profile to the excellent teaching that characterises DMU.
