Student-Led Brookes Teaching Awards for 2015 are Announced

The third annual Brookes Union Teaching Awards took place on Friday 27 March in Headington Hill Hall. The awards were set up by Brookes Union to celebrate the fantastic work that academic and support staff do at Brookes. .

Congratulations go to Angela Hatherell who was awarded for ‘Brookes most outstanding single learning experience’. Ms Hatherell is a Research Assistant and Associate Director and Coordinator of the Oxford Human Rights Festival for the School of Architecture.

An incredible learning experience, giving us a tremendous amount of trust in decision-making, taking charge of the festival and making it what we would like it to be. And while this was happening, Angela was not far, always available for advice, checking in on us, and working really hard while being in the shadows and not taking any credit for it.” - Student nominee.

Over 200 members of staff were nominated by students over seven categories such as ‘Most Inspirational Lecturer’ and ‘Above and Beyond the Call of Duty’. Nominations praised staff for consistently going above and beyond the call of duty.

Rachel Rimmer, Vice President: Academic Experience, stated: “The Student-Led Teaching Awards is an excellent opportunity for students to thank and recognise staff’s outstanding contributions to their overall student experience.”
