Teaching Excellence

Teaching excellence is celebrated at DMU in a number of ways:

HE Academy Recognition – The University supports colleagues to achieve such recognition through its Define scheme.  A target of September 2018 has been set for all staff to have such recognition.

National Teaching Fellowships (NTF) – The University is particularly proud that 18 NTFs have been awarded to academic staff at the University.  This is the third highest number awarded to any university since the scheme began in 2000. For further information see…

DMU Teacher Fellowship (DMUTF) scheme – this allows staff to join a growing group of proven innovators in learning and teaching. For example, the idea and the project team for the CrashEd Project developed through the University’s Teacher Fellow network with an initial focus on the team’s mutual passion for widening participation.  There is an annual call for staff to apply to become a DMU Teacher Fellow.

Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards (VCDTA) – provide the opportunity to celebrate the high calibre of our teaching staff and give them the recognition they deserve. The VCDTA is a student nominated award. These nominations are evaluated at Faculty level and subsequently by a University panel.
