Professor Peter Robinson writes:
As Head of Department, it is always a pleasure to hear of any of our staff being nominated for a Gold Star Award for teaching. This is an annual award which is given in response to student votes, the final decision being made by a panel of student and faculty representatives.
This year I am especially pleased to be able to announce that one of my colleagues, Dr Cindy Becker, was nominated and then shortlisted for the award. Dr Becker was one of three lecturers in our faculty who was shortlisted; the winner in the faculty was Professor Peter Kruschwitz of the Department of Classics.
