The University Grants Committee (UGC) introduced in 2011 a new UGC Teaching Award to honour staff in the UGC sector who excel in teaching and to signal the importance attached by the UGC to quality teaching and learning. The latest structure of the UGC Teaching Award consists of two categories: (1) general Faculty members/teams; and (2) early career Faculty members (open to individuals only). The University is invited to nominate up to three individuals/teams, including up to two nominations for the category of general Faculty members/teams and no more than one nomination for the category of early career Faculty members.

Applications are now invited from teaching excellence award winners for the category of general Faculty members/teams, and from outstanding young teachers for the category of early career Faculty members. For details, please refer to the respective circulars below. Submissions should reach Ms. Synthia Chau, Curriculum Development and Quality Assurance Section of the Registry, by April 1, 2016.
