The Teaching Feedback Award: an opportunity for students to share and celebrate their experiences of receiving excellent feedback from their teachers.

I’m delighted that the student-led Teaching Feedback Award has been launched, and I pledge my wholehearted support. I firmly believe that effective learning depends on students receiving timely, clear and constructive feedback from their teachers. Students have an innate understanding of what good feedback is. This new award will enable them to share this understanding and reward teachers whose feedback they find exemplary.

The purpose of the Teaching Feedback Award (TFA) is to celebrate excellent feedback and encourage debate about feedback among teachers and students.

Nomination
The nomination process is open to all students registered on HKU undergraduate programmes. Teachers will be nominated by their students between May and June 2017, using a nomination form distributed by the HKUSU. Nomination forms should be submitted directly to the HKUSU Office on or before 16 June 2017.

Shortlisting
Nominations will be shortlisted at Faculty-level in late June 2017 by small committees of students appointed from student associations and societies. Each of the 10 committees will select the three nominations they judge to be the most outstanding in their Faculty.

Selection
The 30 shortlisted nominations will be considered by a Selection Panel in September 2017, and one teacher will be chosen from each Faculty to receive the TFA. The Selection Panel will consist of the HKUSU President, three student representatives from Faculties, the Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching and Learning) and the Director of the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning. Each TFA will carry a monetary award of HK$10,000.
