    Categories of Fellowship

    There are two categories of Teaching Excellence Fellowship:

    1. Brookes Teaching Excellence Fellowship. 
    2. Brookes Associate Teaching Excellence Fellowship.


    Categories of Innovation Project

    There are two categories of Innovation Project awards:

    1. Individual award.
    2. Team award.


    The Brookes Teaching Excellence Fellowship recognises outstanding and effective work to enhance the experience of our students from specific departments and across disciplines.  This Fellowship is a prestigious accolade that comes with funding for professional development. 

    The Innovation Project Award provides funding for fresh and exciting new initiatives designed to enhance any aspect of the Brookes Student Experience.  For 2019, project proposals are encouraged which seek to tackle a specific issue relating to Equality, Diversity, or Inclusion at Oxford Brookes.  


    Professional development fund

    In future years the Excellence Fellowships, will also be able to apply for a Teaching Innovation Award to fund a project related to teaching. Additional staff development funding can be applied for from your faculty or directorate to support your development.

    You will be expected to produce an annual report on the progress of your project and to disseminate the project work across the university, for example at the annual Brookes Learning and Teaching Conference.


    Both awards are designed to support you towards a possible nomination by the university for a prestigious National Teaching Fellowship (individual) or national Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (team).

  • Colleagues from all areas of the University are invited to apply to become a Brookes Teaching Excellence Fellow or submit an Innovation Project Proposal.
