President's Awards for Excellence in Inspirational Teaching

To take our teaching quality to a new height, one major driver is to properly recognize teachers’ contributions. In order to recognize and reward both full-time and part-time teaching staff who are making inspirational learning experience for students and / or providing teaching inspiration for fellow colleagues, the President’s Awards for Excellence in Inspirational Teaching will be established to replace the existing President’s Awards for Teaching Excellence. Candidates will submit their entry in the form of a teaching e-Portfolio
