Since the inception of USTP, it has always been its mission to trail blaze in innovation that would contribute to science, technology, and entrepreneurship developments. However, the bloodline towards the realization of this undertaking is the educators moving within the institution. Consequently, these prime movers' efforts must be duly reciprocated with acknowledgment, affirmation, support, and reinforcement through a recognition program.
The USTP Teaching Excellence Awards 2021 is coming this December, and we are thrilled to unravel those who will triumph in the arena of teaching. Have you lived by the virtues of innovation and excellence throughout your teaching journey? Have you spotted colleagues who exhibit novel yet effective pedagogical practices? Watch the video to know more about the recognition program. You and your teaching colleagues might be in line for the awards.
