Could you become a National Teaching Fellow?
Do you get lots of positive feedback from your students and/or colleagues? Have you had notable successes in your teaching practice? Do you influence your colleagues or your profession/discipline beyond SHU? If you can show evidence of these things you may have a claim to excellence. This is a very competitive scheme but if you can show that your practice is outstanding, having transformational effects on your learners, you may be a candidate. Why not find out more by attending a workshop (see below).
National Teaching Fellowship Scheme
The National Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) celebrates outstanding achievement in learning and teaching in Higher Education. The award carries significant prestige and successful candidates are expected to engage in a number of promotional events. The award carries a prize of £5,000 and entitlement to use the post nominals ‘NTF’. You would also join an active community of passionate and enthusiastic professionals working to enhance learning and teaching in HE.
Applying to be an NTF:
A case is made for excellence focussed on three criteria:
- Individual excellence: How you are enhancing and transforming the student learning experience.
- Raising the profile of excellence: How you support colleagues and influence support for student learning and demonstrate impact and engagement beyond your immediate academic or professional role.
- Developing Excellence: The ways in which you engage in professional development activities and how these have impacted on how you teach and/or the students’ learning experience
Please note that the submission deadline for Expressions of Interest for NTF 2018 has now closed.
