Student Led Teaching Awards Received at Graduation Ceremonies 2017

Earlier in the year we announced the winners of each of the categories of our Student Led Teaching Awards, as nominated and voted for by you:


Challenging and Inspiring Teaching - Susan Kelly (Art)
Outstanding Use of Research in Teaching - John Price (History)
Compelling or Diverse Curriculum Content - Anamik Saha, Music as Communication & Creative Practice module (Media)
Non-Academic Staff Member Who Goes Above and Beyond - Ozlem Salih (Student Services)


Design student Anita Grey won the competition to design and make the awards and the striking wooden pieces were given out in Graduation ceremonies on the 19th and 20th July.

The ceremonies saw each of the winners presented with their award, but also ensured that they got the recognition they deserved from the student body and other staff members.

Something that all of the recipients picked up on was how special the award felt because of the fact it was voted for by you, Goldsmiths students.


Dr Anamik Saha said: "This is a very special moment… I want to thank students for inspiring and teaching me." He went on to quote the rapper M.I.A. "when life is a straight line, you've got to zag it".

Dr John Price said: "This award is actually for teaching-led research as much as it is research-led teaching".


Across the summer, the Students’ Union will work with the Teaching and Learning Innovation Centre on campus on a series of workshops related to teaching, for winners and nominees to share best practice across campus - and improve the teaching and learning experience for Goldsmiths students.
