The Centre for Quality Support and Development (CQSD) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Collaborative Awards for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching and Learning. 

The awards scheme is highly competitive and recognises staff that make significant, ongoing contributions to the student learning experience, and who also demonstrate an integrated team approach to the enhancement of teaching and learning.  

The two winning project teams are:
