National Awards For Best University Teachers


The Deadline for Nomination of HEC Best University Teacher Award has been extended to 30th June 2020

The Best University Teacher Award (BUTA) was established to recognize outstanding teachers, and incentivize all faculty members to enhance their pedagogical skills. It is open to BPS, TTS, and contract faculty from public as well as private universities, and comes with a certificate and a cash prize of Rs. 100,000.

Recently, the BUTA program, its funding, scope, and selection criteria were reviewed internally in HEC wherein it was observed that the purpose of awards and prizes should be to incentivize desirable actions. A different set of awards criteria, based on indicators of effective teaching, would encourage more attention to teaching. Based on the discussions, it was agreed that there should be a consensus on the objectives of the BUTA program, and that BUTA criteria be revised to reflect these objectives.

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.
