Middlesex University has been awarded Silver in the new Government Teaching Excellence Framework that has been established to recognise and reward high quality teaching in UK higher education providers.
Middlesex University was particularly praised for its commitment to valuing and rewarding teaching and supporting and enhancing student engagement. High levels of student satisfaction were also commended by the TEF Panel.
Commenting on Middlesex University’s Silver Award Professor Andrea Dlaska, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Learning and Innovation, said:
“We are delighted that the quality of our teaching has been recognised in the country’s first TEF awards.
“We have also strengthened the student voice and extended opportunities for students to provide feedback, as well as investing further in our peer learning scheme. Our students have initiated their own Teaching Awards and in the 2017 round almost 1000 nominations were received recognising the expertise and dedication of our incredible staff at Middlesex.
Middlesex prides itself on pioneering innovative teaching in every sphere of university life. Last year the University opened a new state-of-the art building, the Ritterman building, that focuses on STEM and collaborative working. It provides students with a world-class learning environment equipped with the latest facilities and technology.
Middlesex is committed to investing in new technology and innovative teaching to benefit our students’ university experience and their futures.
