AWARD: Faculty of Science Student Teacher Award

This morning I attended the annual Faculty of Science Awards event and was very pleased to be awarded Student Teacher of the Year for the year 2015-16.  The event recognised the best students, undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as teachers within the Faculty.  A number of presentations highlighted the interesting and valuable research performed within the Faculty, and noted the success of the Faculty's research output in the international research community.

I received my award based on positive feedback received from my students (particularly in relation to my organisation and preparation, enthusiasm and for delivering information with clarity), my commitment to develop pedagogical practice and my efforts to create a community of sessional instructors.
