Teaching Excellence Award 2018

Late last week, the Commerce Students' Society (CSS) announced the winner of their inaugural student-nominated Teaching Excellence Award.
The students considered a number of criteria including (but not limited to):
  • the provision of clear explanations of concepts,
  • demonstration of links between research and practice,
  • customised interactions based on students’ needs,
  • presentation of clear expectations,
  • good use of learning resources,
  • response to feedback from students throughout the semester to improve the learning environment,
  • engages students in learning activities, and importantly,
  • demonstrates passion and interest in the subject,
  • shows a genuine interest in students.
After sourcing student input and an extensive nomination process over a number of months, the students reported that the winner, by an overwhelming majority, was Professor David Harris (Department of Economics).
Congratulations to David on this inaugural award.
