Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Systems

Staff honoured by students in annual teaching awards

Colleagues recognised for efforts to support learning, in University-wide accolades.

The teaching successes of staff at the Global Academy have been recognised in nominations at the Students’ Association annual prizes.

Dr Steph Smith and Dr Susan Jarvis were each nominated for the Teacher of the Year prize.

Professor Alan Duncan was nominated for Outstanding Course, while Professor Lindsay Jaacks was nominated in the category of Outstanding Commitment to Social Justice and Sustainability.

Annual awards

The annual student led teaching awards, now in their 13th year, give students an opportunity to thank staff and celebrate the best of teaching and support at the University.

These recognise the pivotal role that staff play in the student experience, from lecturers and tutors, to supervisors, personal tutors and professional services staff.

Our goal with the Teaching Awards is to celebrate the very best of teaching and support at the University, but it is also important to us that the Awards reflect the diversity of community, and provide a space where staff who may not have access to more formal recognition can be rewarded for their work.
