Student-Led Teaching Awards (SLTAs) are a great way to raise the profile and prestige of teaching and involve your students in the debate around what ‘good’ teaching actually looks like. For your union, it is an important means by which to raise the political capital of the union itself and empowering students to influence learning and teaching policy.
But the potential cost in resources (staff and financial) can be a bit offputting. This briefing is designed to challenge the perception that SLTAs have to be costly and time-consuming, and only for the ‘big’ unions. It offers advice and information that might help you deliver great awards that create really positive results but do not cost the earth.
