Enhancing the student learning experience
12 December 2019
The Team behind Cardiff Business School’s postgraduate teaching programme review has been recognised for its exceptional enhancement of the student learning experience at Cardiff University’s Celebrating Excellence Awards 2019.
The Cross-School, Professional Services and College group were represented by Dr Sarah Hurlow and Dr Stephanie Slater, from Cardiff Business School, Julie Savill, Senior Market Analyst at Cardiff University, and Rachel Squire, Marketing Manager for the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, and picked up the award at a celebratory event on 14 November at The Great Hall, Students' Union.
The awards celebrate Cardiff University staff who go the extra mile, across a range of award categories, and reward individual, team and collaborative achievements, recognising the contributions made by staff working in every area of the University's activities through a range of award categories that include:
- awards for staff in Professional Services roles
- awards for staff in Cardiff Academic roles
- awards open to staff on any career pathway.
This year, 154 individual members of staff and groups of staff were nominated across 15 award categories.
In addition to the winners, the Team behind Cardiff Business School’s Community Day made the shortlist, alongside staff who championed environmental sustainability initiatives, excellence in service and excellence in teaching and scholarship too.
