We are looking for representatives for TREY’s Good teacher award committee

We are looking for 1-3 representatives for Good teacher award committee for the year 2021. The search is open for all TREY’s members. The application period for the position of representatives is open from 22 February to 21 March.

You can find the previous news about the committee from TREY’s web page.

What is this about?

The Student Union of Tampere University (TREY) appreciates the quality of teaching at the University of Tampere, the interest of the teaching staff in developing teaching and education, and the emphasis on student friendliness in teaching. TREY’s goal is to take the teaching staff into account widely in the university community, and for this reason we want to give an award each year to particularly well-performing teaching staff members for their work. The award has been a tradition of both former Universities, and former Student Unions Tamy and TTYY have played a big part in the arrangements of distribution of this award.

At the new Tampere University, the Good Teacher award is given once a year to three teachers. The award was first presented in 2021. Award winners can be nominated by both individual students and associations with TREY association status. Each nominating party (student or association) can nominate one member of the teaching staff per year. The matters required in the nomination proposals are decided by a committee selected by TREY’s Executive Board.

Search criteria and expectations

Any member of the Student Union can apply to the committee. The faculty distribution is considered in the selection.
