The Winner of the 2019 Award is The Teaching Excellence Alliance (TEA) Sandpit, proposed by Penny Sweasey and Graham Holden.

This is a summary of their application:

The UA Teaching Excellence Alliance have created the TEA Sandpit innovation – outcome-focused design intensives which support universities’ sense of strategic urgency around educational priorities through rapid and effective generation of ideas, delivering concrete outcomes on a single day. The TEA Sandpit, named for it characteristic as a vibrant, safe, and collegiate space to work creatively, enables collaboration with like-minded but very contextually different HEIs and facilitates intra, and inter community cross-institutional ‘fast cycle design’.  The TEA Sandpit utilises educational development expertise to generate strategic impact, foster relationships and communities and sustainable culture change in a non-hierarchical and inclusive environment.
