Faculty Teaching Excellence Awards (FTEA)

To recognise and reward teaching excellence at Waikato, the University gives staff and students the opportunity to nominate people who they think deserve consideration for a teaching award. Nominations may be made at any time during the year, but are processed for selection purposes following the first Friday in September each year. Nominations made after this will be included in the next annual selection cycle.

Purposes, Processes and Criteria can be found under the section Committee Administration and Staff Award Guidelines.

Staff and students: nominate any member of staff or team with teaching responsibilities by completing the Faculty Teaching Excellence Award nominations online form.

Once five recommendations are received for an individual or teaching team, then they are asked if they would like to accept the nomination. The Faculty Teaching Coordinator of each faculty is the main point of contact for communicating with nominees. Once the nominees decide to proceed with the FTEA, they will be asked to compile a Teaching Portfolio based on the Ako Aotearoa’s Procedures, guidelines and criteria: Tertiary Teaching Excellence Awards nominations. The Teaching Portfolios are assessed on the basis of one of two sets of criteria (General Criteria or Kaupapa Māori Criteria). Centre for Tertiary Teaching and Learning (CeTTL) staff are available to support and coach nominees in the preparation of Teaching Portfolios.

In collaboration with the Dean, the Faculty Teaching Coordinator is responsible for organising the FTEA selection processes, for communicating with the nominees, and, the Pro Vice-Chancellor's (Teaching and Learning) or their representative

Each Faculty is able to confer up to two FTEA each year.

PLEASE NOTE that from 2016 onward, there is NO monetary allocation for FTEA; each Faculty has the option to continue funding the Faculty Teaching Excellence Award internally.

Later in the year, FTEA recipients may choose to apply for University Staff Awards (Teaching Excellence), from which four awards are made each year with a monetary value of $3000.
