Outstanding Contribution to Teaching Excellence Award won by Italian Studies at Reading

Outstanding Contribution to Teaching Excellence

Over the past few weeks, RUSU has been running the RUSU Excellence Awards. These are teaching awards which aim to recognise members of University of Reading staff who the students believe have gone above and beyond their expectations, tirelessly working to improve the delivery of their teaching and learning experience.

 

A special nomination for the entire Italian Department was received and the effort and detail that the Italian students went into to nominate their entire cohort of staff could not be overlooked!

 

A nomination is a great achievement, and is testimony to the hard work you put into improving the experience of students here at the University. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed!

Italian Students Present the Award

Some comments that students have made in their nominations:

‘We’ve enjoyed a huge variety of learning styles and approaches – but ultimately they all share the same values and that’s helped to create a really strong foundation for our degree’

‘They’ve created a space both formally and informally where students feel they can be listened to. They’ve done this informally by having an open-door policy, treating us as individuals and always being approachable

 ‘We all studied abroad in our third year and we’re so thankful, especially to the admin team, for being a support structure when things occasionally went horribly wrong at our visiting institution; undoubtedly their support saw us through the entire experience ‘
