One of BILT's key endeavours is to celebrate all of the excellent and inspiring teaching and learning that takes place at the University. We love to share best practice and innovative ideas, and give praise and recognition to those who are making a difference.

There are a number of events throughout the year that especially mark out those who are excelling in their teaching:

Bristol Teaching Awards

The prestigious Bristol Teaching Awards (BTAs) are an annual event, awards are based on both staff and student nominations, you can read more about the BTAs and  2021 Awards on the Bristol Teaching Awards page. Nominations for the 2022 BTAs will open from the 21st March - 4th April,9am. The winners will be announced at the Bristol Teaching Celebration that will take place online on Wednesday 8th June 2022, further details will be widely promoted in 2022.


We also celebrate our staff through supporting applications for National Teaching Fellowships (NTF) and Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) through Advance HE. If you are interested in applying the NTF or CATE schemes, please visit the scheme overview page.

Best of Bristol lecture series

The Best of Bristol (BoB) lecture series showcases the best of the University of Bristol lecturers. BoB is a student-led venture in which the student body vote for their best lecturers in each faculty, those who are shorlisted go on to deliver a lecture open to all students and staff, showcasing the University's vibrant learning community whilst also inspiring students to take an interest in subjects outside their main discipline. Visit the BILT video channel to watch previous BoB lectures.
