UTOP Awards

Outstanding UTA Award

We acknowledge and recognise outstanding undergraduate teaching assistants (UTAs) for their teaching efforts and dedication.

He/She is someone who:

  • contributes significantly to student learning, class facilitation, course preparation;
  • mentors students/participants;
  • exhibits exceptional student interaction skills;
  • evidence of strong commitment to teaching duties; and
  • demonstrates other outstanding traits.

Being a UTA was one of the most fulfilling roles I have undertaken at SUTD. Helping students, clarify and simplify challenging concepts was by no means an easy task. Yet, hearing them go ‘oooh’ & ‘aaah’ makes it all worthwhile.
