The annual Staff Recognition Awards were held virtually for the first time, on 8th October 2020 and four Awards for Excellence in Teaching were presented. UCC prides itself on being a student-centred university. This awards scheme recognises the outstanding efforts of teaching staff to ensure that UCC students receive the highest quality learning and teaching experience. All UCC students, staff and alumni were invited to submit nominations for these awards. The successful nominees for 2020 were Professor Louise Crowley, School of Law, Dr Gerard McGlacken, School of Chemistry, Dr Katharina Swirak, Department of Sociology and Criminology, Dr Sharon Lambert and Dr Angela Veale, School of Applied Psychology (Team Award). In this edition, some of the awardees
discuss their research and award winning teaching projects. More stories from awardees to follow in the next edition.
