College of Business Teaching Excellence Awards

CBTEA

Aim

The College of Business Teaching Excellence Awards (CTEA) scheme has been established to recognize the very best teachers in the College of Business who devote themselves to educating the next generation of business leaders.  The Award aims to motivate colleagues in the College of Business to strive for their best and excel in teaching so as to promote a culture of pursuing high-quality teaching among colleagues. It also prepares colleagues to compete in higher level teaching award schemes organized by the University, UGC and the like.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the award, candidates should be full-time academic staff (at the grade of Instructor or above) of the College of Business of at least two years’ standing at the time of application, and hold an appointment of not less than one year from the anticipated date of the award.

Candidates who have been recipients of this College or the University Teaching Excellence Award in the previous three years will not be eligible. The Dean and faculty members on the Selection Panel are not eligible for the award.

As the College offers both the College Teaching Excellence Awards and the College Faculty Development Award (for EMBA/MBA teachers) to recognize outstanding teachers, candidates may only receive one teaching award in the same academic year. Subject to the actual nomination periods for the awards, nominees for both awards may be required to declare their award preference, as appropriate.

Selection Criteria

The selection committee will look for evidence and examples that the teacher demonstrates exemplary professional practices, excellent performance, and contagious enthusiasm for learning, including:

  • Diverse teaching approaches and skills that motivate and inspire students to learn.
  • Development of curricula and resources that reflect a command of the field.
  • Approaches to assessment and feedback that motivate and enhance student learning.
  • Support for the development of students through academic advising and guidance, inside and outside of the classroom.
  • Contributions to the building of a discovery-enriched curriculum for the University and the College, and outstanding supervision of students to self-discovery of knowledge.
