In January the Higher Education Academy (HEA) will invite universities to nominate staff for the 2011 National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS).
Up to 55 awards of £10,000 are made to recognise individual excellence and impact in teaching.
The award is for Fellows' professional development in teaching and learning or aspects of pedagogy. For details of the kind of profile required, refer to the Higher Education Academy website and see the guidance from 2010.
The awards are very competitive and require an intensive period of work on the claim statement during the spring term.
If you are a member of staff who would like to be considered as a nominee from the University of Sussex, contact the Teaching and Learning Development Unit (TLDU) for an informal discussion and advice.
The number of nominations available to each university is strictly limited. Ensure that expressions of interest are made to TLDU by 3 December.
