There was also IOE success in the Student Choice awards. The Student Choice Awards give students the chance to thank members of staff who have inspired and supported them during their time at UCL, letting these staff members know that their hard work makes a difference.

Chris Yates, Lecturer in International Education, won the Award for Exceptional Feedback for his guidance and personal tutoring. His research and development work has been concerned with helping marginalised people access education in lower income settings, and he has worked for many international development agencies and governments particularly in the field of mass teacher development in Africa.

Dr Jennie Golding received the Award for Outstanding Research Supervision. Commenting on her role as a supervisor, Dr Golding said: “It is deeply satisfying to support novice researchers in their (sometimes bumpy) journeys to think, act, communicate and contribute to the educational endeavour in new ways that then enrich their own, and wider, knowledge and practice.”

Angela Cooper, Teaching Fellow at UCL Centre for Languages & International Education, won the Award for Excellent Personal Tutoring. Angela was nominated for her committed work and devotion to her students. She teaches on the UPCSE, the foundation programme at UCL as well as the Thesis Writing Option for PhD students. During the summer she designs and delivers the 8-week preparation course for UPC students who are applying for department of Laws and must take the competitive LNAT exam.

Dr Caine Rolleston from the IOE's Centre for Education and International Development achieved the Award for Inspiring Teaching Delivery. Dr Rolleston is Programme Leader for the Educational Planning, Economics and International Development MA. His teaching focuses on Planning for Education and Development and Economic Perspectives on Education Policy.  His research centres on education systems in low and middle income countries including Ghana, Ethiopia, India and Vietnam.

Also, Kafi Zafar won the Academic Representative of the Year award for the IOE. These awards celebrate the reps who went the extra mile to represent students, and have worked with staff to make students’ academic experience better.
