This is to remind colleagues and students that nominations are now invited for awards under the Teaching Excellence Award Scheme (TEAS) in 2018. The invitation circular dated May 14, 2018 from the Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching and Learning) is accessible at

The TEAS aims to recognise, reward and promote excellence in teaching at the University. Under the Scheme, there are four categories of awards, viz. University Distinguished Teaching Award, Outstanding Teaching Award (OTA), Early Career Teaching Award and Teaching Innovation Award (TIA). Besides individual awards, both OTA and TIA comprise team awards to recognise and encourage collaborative effort and achievement in enhancing teaching and learning. All Faculties are encouraged to nominate colleagues who have made outstanding teaching and learning contributions for these awards. Please refer to the abovementioned circular for further details.

Nominees are encouraged to contact the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) for advice on the preparation of teaching portfolios. CETL will hold a further workshop in September 2018 to support interested staff members to prepare for their submissions.

All nominations and the supporting documents should reach Ms. Synthia Chau, Curriculum Development and Quality Assurance Section, by October 5, 2018. Enquiries may be directed to Ms. Chau at 2859 2440 or email to
