Express a commitment to an institutional value system that sends signals about what it regards as high quality teaching
The Outstanding Educator Award (OEA) is given out annually to honour faculty members who have shown outstanding and sustained performance, dedication and commitment to teaching. The OEA carries a cash award and a teaching grant which enables the award recipient to engage in activities that will support and enhance his role as an educator and also contribute to teaching/learning at NUS. These activities can entail:
The Annual Teaching Excellence Award (ATEA) recognises faculty members who have displayed a high level of commitment to their teaching and carries a cash award.
Faculty members who have received the ATEA three times will be placed on the Honour Roll to recognise their sustained excellent performance in teaching. They will also receive a cash award.
The Career Achievement Award for Pedagogical Excellence (CAPE) honours faculty members for exceptional achievements in educational leadership, pedagogical research and scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) at a regional or global level. CAPE comes with a cash award and an education research grant or a sabbatical in an education related Foundation/Institute/Centre.
