Do you know an excellent teacher or teaching team who deserve wider recognition?
Then take a moment to nominate them for a UC Teaching Award or the UC Teaching Medal.
Nominations for the 2020 Teaching Awards and UC Teaching Medal are open from now until 18 May, so kick start your year now.
Don’t forget that there is also an award available for implementing a single special teaching innovation, and that all teaching awards also bring with them a financial reward. The process is simple: complete a one-step form.
All awards recognise excellence in teaching (including thesis supervision) in both undergraduate and graduate programmes. The teaching medal is UC’s highest award for teaching and leadership.
Further information and nomination forms are available on the Teaching Awards or the Teaching Medal websites.
Well done to all of our students who are graduating from UC this week, and to our staff for all the tools and support you have given to our learning community. Your hard work exemplifies UC’s vision of people prepared to make a difference – tangata tū, tangata ora.
Food for Thought was a series of lunchtime events in the city in which UC academics delivered 15-minute talks covering a range of topics from biology in space to the importance of volunteering in schools.
The events have been a fun way to engage with people in the city and share the exciting research taking place at UC that’s making an impact across Ōtautahi Christchurch and beyond.
There will be a video released shortly capturing the highlights from the events. Thank you to those who took part, and to those who made it along to the events to enjoy some inspiring talks (and delicious food) on your lunch break!
A great example of working together as one – Kotahitanga – to pull off a successful series of events showcasing exciting projects and research taking place at UC.
UC’s inaugural Tangata Tū, Tangata Ora: Celebrating Excellence event was held on Wednesday 27 November, acknowledging the University’s accomplished Emeritus Professors and celebrating the winners of the UC’s 2019 Council Medals.
