What happens after?
This scheme generates a wealth of data, straight from you, the students: what engages you, what you respond to, and what you consider effective teaching and support practice… It seems only right to transform this information into a resource which could be used to further enhance teaching and support practices across the institution!
Our aim is to use the data created by RUSU Excellence Awards to:
- Further enhance the quality of teaching across the institution.
- Promote the ‘Partnership in Teaching and Learning’, which is outlined in our Student Charter between Students and Staff.
- Acknowledge and facilitate the growth of new and upcoming practices.
- Engage more students in the RUSU Excellence Awards process and how their nomination can lead to real change.
