The King's Education Awards is a student-led awards process which recognises and celebrates the outstanding teaching at King's College London. The awards have been running since 2002, and now have over 200 winners from the thousands of nominations received over the past 16 years.

Among the many celebrated staff in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities in the 2019 King's Education awards are Professor Michael Squire (Classics), Ms Daniela Mittelstadt (SPLAS), Dr Rebecca Saunders (Digital Humanities) and Dr Alana Harris (History).

Professor of Classical Art, Michael Squire, was recognised by the awards for Sustained Excellence. His significant contributions in the Department of Classics have led to a sustained impact that has considerable benefits to the learning and teaching of Classics students at King's.

Ms Daniela Mittelstadt, Lector in Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies, was awarded the Expanding Opportunities title. As a lector, she encourages co-curricular activities through exciting and engaging initiatives and regularly organises events to support student's language learning. 

For pioneering a creative learning environment, students elected Dr Rebecca Saunders, Teaching Fellow in Digital Humanities as the recipient of this year's Innovation in Teaching. Rebecca has designed a practical course which inspires other ways of teaching, through face-to-face and online modules. 

Prevailing in the Inclusive Education category is Dr Alana Harris, Lecturer in Modern History. This award celebrates those who show dedication to widening participation by creating a diverse and inclusive atmosphere through teaching and supporting students.

An awards presentation will take place on 20 June 2019 following the Excellence in Teaching conference where winners and guests will celebrate together.
