Ten teachers at Curtin University have been recognised for their positive impact on the learning experience and lives of their students.

They are the 2018 recipients of the Excellence in Teaching Awards, coordinated for the past 19 years by the Curtin Student Guild.

According to Guild President Finlay Nolan the awards are especially important because Curtin staff are nominated by the student community and awarded by a selection panel of students.

“As an organisation led by students, the Guild recognises that our lecturers, tutors and supervisors are the heart of the university.

“Being a university educator is no walk in the park as universities across the country are increasingly focussed on funding, reputation and political lobbying with the working and teaching conditions of academic staff under constant pressure,” she said.

“It is a credit to our academic community that such a high standard of teaching is achieved in this challenging climate.

“This year’s award recipients are passionate, dedicated, and incredibly knowledgeable educators who have gone above and beyond for their students,” said Ms Nolan.
