The Social Sciences Division's scheme formally recognises the outstanding contribution to teaching and learning and the academic development of students shown by colleagues across the Division. The scheme has two strands: Teaching Excellence Awards, recognising an exceptional contribution to education by colleagues at any career-stage, and Teaching Development and Enhancement Project (TDEP) grants for projects focussed on enhancing the learning experience for students at all levels.
