Top teaching talent honoured
Teaching excellence at the University has been recognised in an awards ceremony organised by the Students' Association.
The first EUSA teaching awards recognised achievement in teaching in ten categories at a special ceremony in Teviot Hall with 150 invited guests.
The awards are part of a commitment by EUSA to highlight the importance of excellence in teaching alongside the University’s research activity.
In total 2,704 nominations were received, for 621 staff, 191 courses and 60 departments.
This is a great scheme and a wonderful initiative on the part of our students. I know that colleagues who've been nominated are delighted and have taken great motivation from having their efforts recognised in this way.
