UWI / Guardian Group Premium Open Lecture Series

Overview

One of the CETL’s groundbreaking initiatives has been the establishment of a strategic alliance with the Guardian Group to honour teaching excellence at the St. Augustine Campus. The UWI/Guardian Group Premium Teaching Award is a collaborative effort that commenced in 2000 and it is celebrated every other year.

Alternating with the Premium Teaching Awards is the Premium Open Lecture Series on learning and teaching in higher education. At these lectures, the Centre seeks to have as the feature speakers internationally renowned educators.

 

Rationale

The University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine is committed to providing a dynamic, highly student-centred learning environment in which student learning is pursued as a primary goal of the academy, and excellence in teaching is recognised and rewarded.

Within this environment, the Campus seeks to prepare graduates that are independent learners; problem-solvers; logical, enquiring, creative thinkers; team workers; and with well-developed skills for self-directed, life-long learning.  In pursuing this commitment to educational excellence, the St. Augustine Campus is keen to recognise, celebrate and reward members of its faculty who provide exemplary models of what it takes to create the kind of learning environment outlined above, and an institution with a global reputation for quality teaching and learning.
