Professorial Teaching Fellows

As the Education Strategy at Bristol outlines we recognise, value, celebrate and reward excellence in teaching.

We aim to support and encourage staff to strive for excellence in their teaching and in their abilities to facilitate effective student learning.  Academic staff are encouraged to demonstrate excellence in learning and teaching, as well as in research, and to take advantage of opportunities for continuing professional development in their subject. Excellent teaching, leadership and management encourages individuals to take the opportunity to exercise their initiative in all areas of education, including: curriculum development; assessment methods appropriate to the learning outcomes being tested; and enthusing others to share ideas and good practice.

As part of this commitment, staff can become Professorial Teaching Fellows under pathway 3 of the University's career progression route. This award seeks to recognise staff who make an outstanding contribution to learning and teaching at the University through pedagogic research and innovative initiatives.
