Via the school newsletter:

Three members of staff in LLC [two of them in our department!–Manchet] have been nominated for the University’s prestigious Teaching Excellence Awards. Rob Drummond, a GTF in Linguistics and English Language who taught for many years in the University Language Centre, was nominated by students on the Level 1 Sounds of English course. The students wrote ‘he is entertaining, engaging and teaches us in an interesting way, because of this everyone loves the module!’ Nuria Yáñez-Bouza, a probationary lecturer who only joined the School in 2007, was nominated for her consistently high scores in University Evaluation Questionnaires and for her pioneering use of Turning Point voting pads.

Well done, Rob and Nuria!
