With the ongoing spread of coronavirus, the finals of the Higher Education Psychology Teacher of the Year 2020 award will no longer be announced at the DART-P Annual Conference, which has been postponed. Instead, the competition will continue, and will be judged remotely, with the winner announced online in June. Further information will be posted here in due course.
Applications are now closed. The shortlisted candidates for the Higher Education Psychology Teacher of the Year Award 2020 will be announced towards the end of April.
