The Lord Dearing Award
The Lord Dearing Award Scheme, established in 1999 by the University of Nottingham to acknowledge the outstanding contributions made by staff towards facilitating a nurturing yet challenging learning experience for students.
The scheme, which has been personally supported by the late Lord Ronald Dearing, the fifth Chancellor of the University of Nottingham, has seen more than 100 members of staff receive acknowledgments for their high levels of commitment to teaching and learning, and excellent support provided to students.
The Awards are held each year, with the nominations sent in by staff and students towards the end of the year while the final awards are conferred in the Spring semester of the following year. Awards are given to individuals, teams, and schools, who have greatly enhanced the student learning experience through the impact of their teaching and learning.
