DCU Business School staff receive Teaching Heroes Awards from the National Forum for Teaching and Learning
Congratulations to our DCU Business School colleagues who have received Teaching Heroes awards.
The 2021 Awards are based on nominations received in late 2020, in which students were asked to respond to the following:
Tell us about your higher education Teaching Hero in 150 words or less. Don’t just tell us that your Teaching Hero was great … tell us why.
The nomination process provides an opportunity for students to shine a light on some of those who have made a difference to them during their studies. Data from previous Teaching Hero Awards, published here, show that students who participated in the nomination process valued their teachers for certain kinds of characteristics and behaviour. Typical of these included: generosity with time, approachability, helpfulness, passion for their subject, encouraging of student learning, and skilled communication. Examples of how well those who teach responded to the pandemic context was also mentioned by many students in submissions received in 2020.
This year’s Awards were non-competitive, with all those who had received nominations and were happy to accept an Award being included in the list of Awardees. The Awards video, featuring the names of all Teaching Heroes and examples of the nominations received can be viewed below.
