Apply for the University Distinguished Teaching Fellowship scheme 2017
The 2017 round of the University Distinguished Teaching Fellowship (UDTF) scheme is now open. A UDTF promotes, rewards and celebrates excellence in teaching and related activities that support and enhance the Leicester student experience. The Fellowships were previously known as University Teaching Fellowships but have been renamed to University Distinguished Teaching Fellowships for 2015 onwards to more accurately reflect their status.
This is the 14th year of the scheme. In 2016, three members of staff submitted applications demonstrating they were deserving of a UDTF. Their awards were conferred at the Degree Congregations, with each recipient receiving a reward of £3,000.
The fellowships are an important element of our recognition and encouragement of good teaching. We seek to recognise excellence in teaching wherever it is found, and the scheme is open to all employees of the University in academic, research, teaching-only and learning support roles.
