We're delighted to introduce two new members of our judging panel: Associate Professor of Law at the University of Leicester, Dawn Watkins and Tom Young, senior publishing manager in the higher education department of Oxford University Press.
How it works
Wednesday 13th December 2017
Nominations close at 5pm.
The judging panel carefully consider all the nominations individually before meeting to draw up a shortlist of six finalists.
February – April
Two members of the judging panel visit each of the six shortlisted candidates to:
Observe a teaching session;
Interview a group of students, including some who participated in the observed session;
Interview two of the candidate’s teaching colleagues;
Interview the candidate’s Head of Department;
Interview the candidate themselves.
Each of these sessions is either video or audio recorded so that it can be shared with the remaining members of the judging panel.
Students past and present are invited to produce a short video in support of their teacher.
The judging panel are sent the recordings from each of the campus visits and the student videos for their consideration. All four members of the panel then meet to discuss each candidate and decide the winner.
