Teaching Innovation of the Year
In an increasingly competitive academic and recruitment landscape, those universities and placement providers adapting traditional methods or developing alternate ways to offer interesting, innovative and engaging methods of teaching will be most noticed.
The use of technology has naturally been especially in the spotlight during the pandemic, with many education staff working from home or students doing virtual placements. This is an award that looks for any teaching method that is workable, successful and potentially sustainable – including (but not limited to) use of social networking, modern communication media or new technology.
