Lanre Kassim, an Economics PhD student, has won a Kent Union Teaching Award. The annual awards were created, and are run by students to recognise and reward staff for their commitment to the delivery of excellent teaching.
Many congratulations to Lanre, who was presented with the award for ‘Postgraduates who teach’ at a ceremony yesterday evening (30 March 2015). Lanre teaches on the first year module, ‘Introduction to Economics’. Lanre commented, “I would like to thank the School of Economics for the opportunity to teach; and also thank Wei Jiang, John Peirson, Manuel Toledo and Alan Carruth for the privilege of being an assistant to them. I dedicate the award to the School and all my students”.
