I am really pleased to have been nominated for two Golden Robes awards this year.
The Golden Robes are Leeds Beckett’s staff awards which are entirely student led. They allow students to recognise members of staff who’ve made their time at the University both enjoyable and memorable.Students can nominate for a number of different categories. I received certificates for ‘Undergraduate Supervisor of the Year 2016’ and ‘Postgraduate Supervisor of the Year 2016’.
Students are important to me – I try to encourage them to love the social sciences through my teaching methods and attitude, so I was delighted to be able to display these on my desk. The awards are anonymous – so I don’t know who put my name forward. But whoever you are, if you are reading this, thank you very much and see you at graduation!!
