On the 17th March last term, RUSU held their Partnership in Teaching and Learning Showcase at which winners of the Teaching Excellence Awards were invited to speak. These teaching awards aim to recognise members of University of Reading staff who students believe had gone above and beyond their expectations, tirelessly working to improve the delivery of their teaching and learning experience.
We’re very pleased to be able to say that our own Karín Lesnik-Oberstein won the Outstanding Personal Tutor Award and that Maddi Davies was also nominated for the very same award.
We also had several Teaching Excellence award nominations for: Nicola Abram, Rebecca Bullard, Neil Cocks, Maddi Davies, John Holmes, Mary Morrissey and Sue Walsh, and Sue was also nominated for the Research Inspired Teaching award.
We would all like to thank our students for their kind and generous nominations, it means a great deal, to all of us, to receive such nominations and we are grateful to our students for the commitment, energy and eloquence that has made it such a pleasure to teach them. As Neil Cocks writes: “Teaching is always a collaborative process, and so we would like to thank all the students we have taught this year for helping to further each other’s understanding, as well as our own.”
