Teaching Excellence Awards
For the ninth year running, the College has honoured those academics who received a Teaching Excellence Award in the School of Arts & Humanities. Four members of staff are honoured for their outstanding contributions to teaching and learning: Dr David Crankshaw
(Theology & Religious Studies), Dr Ian McBride
(History), Professor Charlotte Roueché
(Centre for Hellenic Studies/Classics) (pictured)
and Dr Soizick Solman
(French). They will receive their awards at a graduation ceremony in July.
The awards follow a widespread consultation exercise in which students were asked to submit nominations for those worthy of such an award. The award holders were chosen according to the strength of the nominations, and against a more general background of their teaching activities. This year 1,214 students took the time to submit their nominations.
In the words of Dr Jan Palmowski, the Head of the School of Arts & Humanities:
‘The Teaching Excellence Awards have become an important way in which the School of Arts & Humanities, and King’s College London more widely, use student feedback to assess the quality of our teaching. We value our faculty’s commitment to teaching immensely, and I would like to congratulate the award holders, and to thank them for their dedication and enthusiasm.’
