RUSU Excellence Awards are now open with more awards than ever

RUSU Excellence Awards 2021

Each year, Reading University Students' Union (RUSU) hosts the Partnership in Teaching and Learning Showcase in celebration of the RUSU Excellence Awards. It might be a little different this year but we intend to celebrate as best we can nonetheless!

The Excellence Awards recognise University of Reading colleagues who display excellent and innovative teaching practice and support for students. There are 18 staff awards this year (almost double that of previous years) one for each school and three supplementary awards to recognise both teaching excellence, Academic Tutor excellence, Support staff excellence and diverse and inclusive teaching excellence.

These awards are completely student-led and give students the opportunity to nominate staff who have gone above and beyond in their roles, enhancing the student experience here at Reading.

Graduate Jenna Roberts said of her lecturer Jacqui Turner, winner of Teaching Excellences in Humanities 2019 - "Jacqui constantly supports and believes in her students and inspires us to push ourselves. Her enthusiasm too is inspiring and makes us all more passionate about our subject."

The RUSU Partnership in Teaching & Learning Showcase provides an opportunity for staff and students from across the University to appreciate the great work - that can sometimes go unseen - in a forum outside of the day-to-day of teaching.

We hope to hold the 2021 Showcase later in the summer term, COVID-19 restrictions permitting, and it will include the presentation of Excellence Awards to staff and student winners, celebrating the partnership built between the University of Reading, RUSU and our student community. Further information will be shared nearer the time.

Together, the Awards and the Showcase help initiate important conversations about teaching, learning and working together, and provide an opportunity for great ideas and best practice to be shared.

This year, nominations for the awards officially opened at the beginning of the spring term and close on Friday 26 March 2021. Students are asked to submit nominations on RUSU's website and staff are also able to nominate Student Reps by creating a guest account and logging in via that to nominate.
