The Disciplinary Excellence in Teaching, Learning and Assessment (DELTA) Awards are discipline-focused awards which are presented to discipline groups who can demonstrate a record of excellence in teaching and learning enhancement and who commit to an ongoing, clearly articulated, shared process of continued enhancement. At a time when Irish higher education institutions are being challenged to evaluate and develop their current systems in a rapidly evolving environment, the DELTA Award process places a strong, integrated focus on teaching and learning enhancement and helps heads and leaders of disciplinary units to conceive, articulate and support teaching and learning enhancement plans. Discipline groups apply for this award and applications are reviewed by an international panel, who make the final selection.

The DELTA Awards were first presented in 2018.
