Staff and students from QMUL Geography shortlisted for Education Awards
3 March 2016
Every year the Education Awards, run by the Queen Mary Students’ Union (QMSU), celebrate the contributions of staff and students to improving the Queen Mary learning experience. The Education Awards include the Course Rep Awards, awarded to course reps who have made a huge difference to students and their courses, and the Teaching Awards, awarded to teaching and support staff that have made an outstanding contribution to the student experience.
This year, a number of students from the School of Geography were nominated and received Course Rep Gold Awards, including Leon Kennedy (BSc Geography, first year), Megan James (BA Human Geography, first year), Jason Lynch (BSc Environmental Science, first year), Emma Woodhouse (BA Geography, second year) and Adam Packer (BA Geography, third year); and Rafi Mannan (BSc Geography with Business Management, first year), Shajiyah Begum-Uddin (BSc Geography, second year), Umar Haroon (BSc Environmental Science with Business Management), Suzanna Massingue (BSc Geography with Business Management) and Reshana De Silva (BSc Environmental Science, third year) who won the Course Rep Contribution Award.
Three of our colleagues were also nominated and shortlisted for the Teaching Awards: Eleanor Schreiber (Acting Student Support Officer) nominated for Academic Support Award; Kate Amis (Widening Participation Officer) nominated for Learning Resources Champion; and Ginny Benardout (PhD student) nominated for Postgraduate Teaching Award.
The Awards Ceremony, followed by a drinks reception, was held in the prestigious Drapers Hall in the City on Monday evening (29th Feb) where the winners were announced.
Congratulations to all our students and staff who were nominated and won awards this year!
