The Department's Teaching Associate Dr Katharine Hubbard has won a CUSU Student-Led Teaching Award. She has been given an award in the lecturer category for enthusiastic and engaging teaching. 265 nominations were made and 5 awards have been granted. Katharine will receive her award at a reception in the Old Schools on May 12th, with awards to be presented by the CUSU Education Officer and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, Professor Graham Virgo.
The CUSU awards are an opportunity for students to recognise the exceptional contribution their teachers have made to their education at Cambridge. Any student at Cambridge is able to nominate, and the judging is carried out by a panel of students working alongside the Students' Union. When submitting a nomination, students are asked to explain why their chosen member of staff should receive an award - these testimonies enable the awards to be judged and highlight the outstanding contribution of so many teachers within the university.
