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. This is an award that looks for any teaching method that is sustainable, workable and successful – including (but not limited to) use of social networking, modern communication media or new technology.
What are the judges looking for?
- A novel idea that has been introduced at some point between April 2018 and December 2019 that helps student nurses or midwives improve their understanding of academic subjects or clinical skills in a healthcare setting by a healthcare provider or by a university;
- Proof of the popularity and success of the innovation;
- Evidence that it enriches learning and improves standards of teaching;
- Demonstration that the idea is sustainable.
Please attach any supporting evidence to your application that you feel is relevant. This can include testimonials, student feedback or student evaluations or any other appropriate evidence.
We strongly recommend sending videos and photographs to bring your environment to life. Please provide any evidence of dissemination of the idea if relevant.
This award is open to entries from any provider of placements for students or any university. This award is open to any idea introduced on any nursing or midwifery course of any size at any stage between 1 April 2018 and 31 December 2019.
If you are shortlisted for this award, you will be invited to attend our offices to present to the judges with one or two of your student(s), who may be interviewed separately. Please ensure you are available on Tuesday 10 March to present to the judges.
