Given that both our vision and mission statements focus on students, the USP naturally places a high premium and heavy emphasis on good teaching. The USP recognises its top teachers each year with the USP Teaching Excellence Awards. Further, our faculty members are often also honoured at the university level with NUS Annual Teaching Excellence Awards, and NUS Outstanding Educator Awards.

USP Teaching Excellence Award

USP Teaching Excellence Award

The programme-level USP Teaching Excellence Award honours faculty members who have gone beyond the normal duty of classroom teaching and made significant and lasting contributions to students' intellectual and personal growth. Winners are selected by the Faculty Teaching Excellence Committee, which considers a range of evidence, such as student feedback scores and qualitative comments, class observations, and peer reviews.

The winners of the USP Teaching Excellence Award 2016, which recognises USP teaching done in AY2015/16, are:

USP Teaching Honour Roll

Established in 2013, the USP Teaching Honour Roll further lauds the sustained contributions of our teachers. Faculty members who have won the USP Teaching Excellence Award three times (since 2009) are accorded a place on the honour roll for three years.

The USP Teaching Excellence Honour Roll stands as follows:

2014-2016

  • Dr Peter Vail
  • Dr Patrick Daly
  •  

2012-2016*

  • A/P Donald Favareau
  • A/P Johan Geertsema
  • A/P Lo Mun Hou

* all three had won three ATEAs by 2012 and thus eligible to be placed on the USP Honor Roll, for three years, in that year. However, since the USP Honor Roll was only established in 2013, their Honor Roll placement is considered as running for three years starting from 2013.
