De Montfort Students Union (DSU) has joined forces with De Montfort University (DMU) to recognise lecturers that have gone above and beyond for their students.
Nominations are now officially open for the Vice Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards 2018-19. The award gives DMU students the chance to nominate lecturers, tutors and teachers who have made a positive impact to DMU students’ time at university.
If you’ve got a lecturer who has gone the extra mile, perhaps by being a great personal tutor, giving some excellent feedback or being generally brilliant, nominate them now by telling us why they should win at survey.dmu.ac.uk/vcdta.
You can also nominate someone by filling in one of the flyers our Student Champions will be giving out across campus.
Elgan Hughes, Head of Membership Services at DSU and Mollie Footitt, DP of Eduction at DSU, helped recognise 2018's winners alongside Vice-Chancellor Dominic Shellard at the 2018 Oscars.
Elgan Hughes, Head of Membership Services at DSU, said: “This is all about a celebration of outstanding contributions from staff across the university and the positive impact they have had on their students.
“The university experience is all about working together and building relationships, and this is the time to recognise that.
“The students’ union is here to represent your academic interests, but we cannot do that without you, as well as staff across the university who help us create that positive change.
“The Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards are your opportunity to give back and let someone know the influence they have had and how they have helped shape your future. Just 30 seconds out of your time can make someone’s day and let that lecturer know that what they are doing is fantastic.”
You can make as many nominations as you like but make sure you do it before nominations close on Friday 8 February 2019!
The winners will be announced, alongside recipients of the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Student Awards – nominated by teaching staff – at the university’s Outstanding Service Contribution and Achievement Recognition Awards (OSCARs) later this academic year.
