The University of Plymouth has been shortlisted for a major new international award in recognition of its teaching and learning culture.
The University is a finalist in the inaugural Global Teaching Excellence Award alongside 26 other institutions from Australia, South Africa, Canada, Hong Kong, Europe, and the UK.
Launched by the Higher Education Academy, it’s the first global award to recognise and celebrate institutional commitment to the pursuit of teaching and learning excellence. In particular, the award has been looking at leadership, teaching and student support.
Professor Julian Chaudhuri, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education and Student Experience), said:
“This is recognition of Plymouth’s deep-rooted commitment to teaching, learning and education. The University prides itself on its culture of pedagogic research, innovative teaching and learning, and supporting students, and is distinguished by active partnership with its student community, and the research-rich quality of its curriculum.”The overall award winner will be announced at a ceremony in London in September.
