At a ceremony held in the Quad, six outstanding members of staff were presented with awards by University Chancellor Dame Janet Ritterman.
More than 700 student nominations were received this year across five categories, with the shortlist created by a panel of students and elected student officers.
The prestigious award for Most Empowering Teacher went to Senior Lecturer in Criminology Dr Anastasia Karamalidou, who was described as "an exceptional individual" in her nomination. Reflecting on the award, Dr Karamalidou said: "This is a great honour that is particularly special for me since it represents the students' choice.
Most Inspiring Teacher was awarded to Claire Lewis, Lecturer in BA Graphic Design, who was similarly thrilled: "I consider myself extremely lucky to have the job that I do. The fact that it was the students who nominated me for this award is what makes it so special."
Also recognised were Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Studies and Education Angela Scollan for Best Feedback; Senior Lecturer in Environmental Science and Engineering Dr Steve Kett for Most Innovative Teaching; and Graduate Academic Assistant in Sport Science Oliver Rix for Best Support Staff.
There was also a special award presented to Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing David Price for Outstanding Compassion. David provided "amazing support … far above and beyond his role as a lecturer" to one of his students, Linder Matonga, after she was diagnosed with cancer.
Linder said: "I don't think he realises how much of a difference he has made in my life. David deserves a special award for all that he has done for me."
