Teaching winners honoured

Arabic Teaching Fellow Marwa Mouazen recognised in the 2016 EUSA Teaching Awards.

On Wednesday 20 April 2016 the 2016 EUSA Teaching Awards were announced recognising teaching excellence across the University of Edinburgh.

Students voted in a range of categories to honour staff who have had a major impact on improving their learning experiences.

Marwa Mouazen, Arabic Teaching Fellow in the department of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies, was awarded the Ian Campbell Award for Teaching in the Humanities and Social Science (Best Overall Teacher).

The award recognises the best of the best in each College. Nominatated teachers are those who inspire students to learn and achieve their best through engaging communication, innovative teaching methods, encouraging feedback in interaction and helping to expand students' emplyability skills.

The awards recognise teachers, support staff and peer support leaders who strive to raise standards and introduce innovative ways of helping students to learn.

This year over 2000 nominations were received, and a student judging panel agreed the shortlist and winners.

Awards in 11 categories, including Best Personal Tutor, Best Feedback and Best Support Staff were presented.

More than 100 students and staff members attended the event.
