Second year undergraduate student Jodie Perry has been presented with the Kent Union Teaching Award for best course rep. Jodie has held the elected position since October 2014 and has represented the views of students at the School of Computing in the staff and student liaison committee, at the School learning and teaching committee, and at faculty level.
The staff and student winners of seven categories were announced at the Kent Union Teaching Awards 2015 ceremony on 30 March in the Darwin Conference Suite.
Jodie said; ‘I knew that I had been nominated and shortlisted but I had no idea that I would win until I heard mention of ‘computing room’ when the nominations were being read out. I am thankful to everyone who nominated me and for the School for providing a platform for students and responding to everything that we raise.’
Colin Johnson, chair of the staff and student liaison committee said: ‘I am very pleased to see that Jodie has won this award. Student feedback is very important in helping the School to improve, and so it is good to see student reps getting recognised for the valuable contribution they make to the School.’
The Kent Union Teaching Awards recognise and reward those who are committed to delivering excellent teaching for students.
