Student-Led Teaching Awards: Lessons from a Leading Higher Education Initiative in Scotland. HEA Research Series
Davies, Robert A.; Hope, Murray J.; Robertson, Alastair D.
Higher Education Academy
Following a hugely successful pilot in Scotland in 2009-10, the joint Higher Education Academy (HEA) and National Union of Students (NUS) Student-Led Teaching Awards (SLTA) initiative has gone from strength to strength. SLTAs are a positive method of raising the profile of teaching and celebrating best practice. In just three years they have become well established throughout the UK. This report brings together findings from the first two years of the SLTA initiative in Scotland (academic years 2009-10 and 2010-11). Based primarily upon data collected in the second year, this report provides background to the initiative, its ethos, aims and objectives; discusses some of the key findings from the initiative; and considers what can be learned through the analysis of the data available through SLTAs and the wider applicability of the SLTAs to the sector. Four appendices are included: (1) SLTA Network members 2009-10 and 2010-11; (2) Sample of analysis template field; (3) Sample questions from the evaluation questionnaire; and (4) Sample questions from the impact interview.
