Teaching Matters is the University of Edinburgh’s website for debate about learning and teaching, for sharing ideas and approaches to teaching, and for showcasing our successes, including academic colleagues who are leading the way in delivering brilliant teaching.
Every month we take a theme and explore it through a video highlighting one of our ‘4*’ teachers, written features, a Focus on a School, and a number of blog contributions over the month. We also add news items as they come in and run an events listing page.
The theme for this month is the EUSA Teaching Awards. The Edinburgh University Students’ Association was the first to establish an annual Teaching Awards to recognise good teaching going on at the University. Since the first awards ceremony in 2009, Edinburgh has led the way for other institutions to follow.
This month’s theme blogs (published throughout the month) will showcase teachers and students who have nominated others, been nominated themselves, or won EUSA Teaching Awards. We’ve also made a video featuring teachers and students who attended this year’s ceremony, and we’ll hear from current EUSA President, Jonny Ross-Tatam.
I hope that you enjoy this edition of Teaching Matters and encourage you to get involved. Let us have your news, let us know when you are organising events on learning and teaching we can publicise, and send in your own blogs and comments.
We look forward to hearing from you.
