Lecturer Award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

18 Jun 2014

Martyn Pemble Runner-Up in SEFS Category

Professor Martyn Pemble has been selected as Runner-Up of the 2014 College of SEFS Student Nominated Lecturer Award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (from over 90 nominations across the College).

This followed a two stage process organised through the College of SEFS Office, whereby students across the College were initially invited to nominate lecturers they deemed worthy of the award from which an initial shortlist was drawn, followed by a second stage whereby (other) students taking modules of lecturers on the shortlist were randomly selected and invited to provide additional feedback. The College of SEFS Teaching Learning & Student Experience Committee then blindly selected the winner and two runners up from shortlisted candidates (identified only as A, B, C, D, etc.)

The Committee was highly impressed by the incredibly high esteem that shortlisted candidates were held by their students. The award attracted wide engagement from across the student body; over 90 nominations were received from students for this award.

Here is a selection of the feedback received from Professor Pemble’s students:

  • “A brilliant lecturer who makes the material look much more interesting than anyone has thought and for sure with a great sense of humour”
  • “This lecturer is what I wanted university to always be, to bring to light the practice of engaging students”
  • “so genuine and actually cares about his students. He is very approachable and his lecture notes are excellent”

Congratulations to Martyn!!
