Drafting and decision processes

Each faculty board has an academic appointment committee, which drafts the applications for decision by the faculty board. This means that the committee first decides whether an application meets the criteria for being sent for peer assessment. Once the expert opinion has been received, the committee submits a proposal to the faculty board to either appoint the applicant as an excellent teaching practitioner or to reject the application.


Applications for appointment to excellent teaching practitioner are handled by the Centre for Academic Development. If you have any questions, please contact This is an email address
