Teaching Excellence Award Scheme 2021


This is to remind colleagues and students that nominations are now invited for awards under the 2021 Teaching Excellence Award Scheme (TEAS). 

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 (ECTA) 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.  For ECTA, in particular, we hope to receive at least one nomination from each Faculty.

For further details, please refer to the circular from the Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching and Learning) at:

Nominees are encouraged to contact the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) for advice on the preparation of teaching portfolios. 

All nominations and the supporting documents should reach Ms. Synthia Chau, Curriculum Development and Quality Assurance Section, by October 22, 2021.  Enquiries may be directed to Ms. Chau at 2859 2440 or email to
