St Edmund's College Fellow, Dr Fiona Maine, has won a student-led teaching award in the lecturer category for 'passionate and innovative' teaching from the Cambridge University Student's Union. Fiona received the prestigious award at a ceremony at The Old Schools on 12 May 2015 and is a University Lecturer at the Faculty of Education.
CUSU received 265 submissions from students who were invited to nominate the lecturers, supervisors, pastoral or student support staff that have really enhanced their education. The student-led teaching awards are a unique opportunity for students to recognise the exceptional contribution their teachers have made to their education at Cambridge. Any student at Cambridge is able to nominate, and the judging is carried out by a panel of students working alongside the Students’ Union. When submitting a nomination, students are asked to explain why their chosen member of staff should receive an award-these testimonies enable the awards to be judged and highlight the outstanding contribution of so many teachers within the university.
