President’s Awards forTeaching Excellence, 2015-2016
We all know of a particular member of staff who is an excellent teacher, perhaps because of his/her enthusiasm and passion for the subject; commitment to help students learn; willingness to embrace interesting and innovative ways of teaching - or perhaps all of these!
If you would like to draw our attention to those staff (or team of staff) who you think are particularly deserving of recognition please consider nominating them and complete the nomination form that is available on the CELT website. Nominations can be put forward by any two (or more) staff, students or alumni of the University.
Nominations should be submitted before the end of Friday 19th February.

NUI Galway is now a partially smoke-free campus.
There are now two smoke-free zones in the north and south campus, centred around two new smoking shelters. If you study or work in the:
please use the smoking shelters for your cigarette breaks.
In 2013, a majority of staff and students expressed their preference for making the University a partially smoke-free campus. We are all aware of the dangers associated with smoking, and by restricting smoking outside some of our busiest campus buildings, we hope to make NUI Galway a cleaner and healthier place for everyone.
A recent initiative on Blackboard was to add Course Instance information to each student enrollment on a Blackboard course. This allows instructors to see, at a glance, which cohort a student belongs to.
Students, when checking MyGrades in a Blackboard course, will now see an entry called Course Instance. When the Description is opened, a message, like the one in the picture, can be seen.
If there is a code in the Grade Column (in the above image, the code is 1FR1), then there is no need to contact reghelp.
An absence of a code in this position (marked by a red box) may indicate a problem with your registration. In that case, you should check with reghelp.
