Lord Dearing Award winners 2019

July 25th, 2019

The winners of the Lord Dearing Awards have been announced for 2019.

The Lord Dearing Award Scheme has, since 1999, acknowledged the world-class contribution made by University staff to creating a learning environment which is nurturing as well as challenging, creative and innovative.

The scheme was supported personally by Ronald Dearing, Lord Dearing the fifth Chancellor of The University of Nottingham, and it has seen more than 100 members of staff receive an award for high quality teaching and the support of learning.

The Awards are held annually, with nominations from staff and students considered in late winter and awards conferred in spring.
