We are excited to share our third annual TEAs Report with you. We believe that this is our most in-depth and insightful TEAs Report to date.
To produce this year’s Report, we analysed the nominations from the 2017/18 TEAs and identified the key themes which attest to the richness of teaching and learning as you see it at Newcastle. We also analysed the nomination data from the 2015/16, 2016/17, and 2017/18 TEAs and identified long term trends.
A key finding of this year’s Report is that, while the nominations clearly demonstrate your appreciation for staff, they do not really serve as a measure of teaching ‘excellence’.
As a result of our findings, we’ve decided to rename our awards to ‘The Education Awards (TEAs)’ to better reflect the character of your TEAs nominations. We also make a series of observations about the disciplinary differences within student perceptions of teaching approaches which we believe constitute a unique contribution to existing research on the topic.
We hope that you find the Report engaging, and we are sure that you will be as inspired as we are by its accounts of exceptional teaching and support.
If you would like to discuss the findings in more detail, or receive a presentation on the report in your Student-Staff Committee, you can contact Joe Barton (email@example.com).
