National Awards For Best University Teachers

The Best University Teacher Award (BUTA) has been established since 2003 to recognize outstanding teachers and incentivize all the faculty members to enhance their pedagogical skills. It is open to BPS, TTS, and contract faculty from public as well as private sector universities.

The nominees for the year 2020 were evaluated on the basis of revised framework and the awards were conferred in three broad fields of study i.e. Social Sciences and Humanities, Physical Sciences and Engineering and Life Sciences and Medicine.

Objectives: 

BUTA has three objectives,

  • Incentive: Provide an incentive to faculty members to improve the quality of their teaching and pedagogy;
  • Pedagogical: build a national consensus on what constitutes good teaching;
  • Capacity Building: build a national database, accessible to all faculty members, especially junior faculty members, of syllabuses, grading systems (including tests, exams, quizzes), lesson plans, and lecture slides (PPTs).   

Award Categories:

The HEC BUTA award has been split into two levels:

  • University-Level Best University Teacher Award
    • The university level awards would be conferred directly by the universities. Each university's best teacher awards will consist of a certificate of merit, plus, if a university Syndicate so decides, a cash award of up to Rs. 200,000/-.
    • Only the winners of university level awards would be eligible for competing in the HEC national award competition.
  • HEC National-Level Best University Teacher Award
    • HEC would confer one or more national awards, to a limited number of recipients, to ensure their exclusivity and prestige. The HEC National Level Best University Teacher Award consists of a cash prize of Rs. 1,000,000/- (Rupees ten Lac only) along with a certificate of merit.
