Teaching Hero Awards

The Teaching Hero Awards learning impact awards were first launched in January 2014. The awards are run in partnership with the Union of students of Ireland (USI). Students can nominate their teaching hero by completing an online nomination form, which includes the reasons why a staff member is a teaching hero as well as the impact this has had on the students teaching and learning experience. The campaign is run locally by the student’s union office within each institution.
