University of Dundee

Chancellor’s Award 2015-2016 to Professor David Coates

06 Jun 2016

Congratulations to Professor David Coates, Director of LABSe School of Life Sciences, for being a Chancellor's Award Winner 2015-16.

The University values high quality teaching as part of its mission and strategy and acknowledges this with a suite of awards at School and institutional level which recognise and reward excellent teaching. These awards are complemented by both discipline-specific awards, such as the FaME (Faculty of Medical Educators) and the DUSA-organised Student-Led Teaching Awards (SLTA), where teachers are nominated by their students based on what has best supported their learning over the year.

The Chancellor’s award aims to acknowledge and reward senior teachers for outstanding achievement in contributions to teaching at the University of Dundee over a significant period of time. Winners will also have demonstrated effective leadership in teaching and mentorship of new teachers.
