Ruben Andersson, Gary Jones shortlisted in Oxford SU awards
We are delighted to announce that Ruben Andersson and Gary Jones have been shortlisted in the Oxford SU student-led Teaching Awards for 2018.
Ruben Andersson has been shortlisted in the Most Acclaimed Lecturer category. He has also been nominated for the Special Recognition Award, which recognises someone who has made a significant and distinctive contribution to research; college life; their department or faculty; or to the lives of students.
Gary Jones, our caretaker, has been shortlisted in the Outstanding Support Staff category. This is the third time Gary has been shortlisted for the award. Last year he won the award, with a record 67 nominations.
In addition, our former DPhil student Jennifer Cassidy, who is now a lecturer in politics at St Peter’s College, has been nominated in the Outstanding Tutor category.
The awards, which are entirely student-led, aim to recognise great teaching and teaching support at Oxford and to help engage students more effectively in their academic experience. They are also used to support good practice at the university, with winners and nominees invited by the organisers of the award to further talks about their teaching methods.
The results will be announced at an awards ceremony in the Town Hall on 10 May 2018.
