Provost’s Teaching Awards 2013/2014

Recipients of the 2014 Provost’s Teaching Awards Trinity College Dublin were announced on Wednesday 18th June 2014 at a ceremony in the Provost's garden.

The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences would like to congratulate Assoc. Prof. Tamaine Grimes on being shortlisted for an Early Career Teaching Award.

The Provost’s Teaching Award Scheme is designed to recognise and reward those who have made an outstanding contribution in the pursuit of teaching excellence. The prestige of the award reflects the value which Trinity places on promoting teaching as a scholarly activity and the importance placed on enriching the learning opportunities of its students.

The scope of the initiative is broad, covering all aspects of teaching, learning and assessment, and seeks to:

  • Provide recognition for excellent teaching
  • Reward teaching staff who are creative in their approaches to teaching and learning and who use a variety of mechanisms to achieve their learning outcomes
  • Share best practice across College and encourage teaching staff to consider other approaches to course design, delivery and assessment
  • Reaffirm that curriculum development, teaching, learning, assessment and evaluation, are important activities in College requiring high level expertise
  • Encourage teaching staff to reflect critically on their teaching practice

At least one will be an Early Career Award for nominees with not more than five years full-time third-level teaching experience at the time of nomination (or equivalent as determined by the committee). If an applicant meets the existing criteria and additionally demonstrates in their application ‘evidence of sustained commitment to teaching excellence, supporting learning and it is clear that the scholarship of the nominee has been inspirational and/or influential among academic colleagues within or beyond the institution’ the nominee may also be considered for a Lifetime Achievement Award.
