What Students Value as Inspirational and Transformative Teaching
Bradley, Sally; Kirby, Emma; Madriaga, Manuel
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v52 n3 p231-242 2015
Evidence presented here stems from an analysis of student comments derived from a student-nominated inspirational teaching awards scheme at a large university in the United Kingdom (UK). There is a plethora of literature on teaching excellence and the scholarship of teaching, frequently based upon portfolios or personal claims of excellence, and often related to monetary reward or promotion. However there is a paucity of research into student-nominated awards and the student perception of inspirational and transformative teaching despite a growing number of student-led schemes in the UK. This article seeks to address this gap in knowledge at the same time presenting some of the challenges in managing a student-nominated teaching awards scheme.
