Chemistry students cast their votes

Published: 18 May 2016

Members of staff in Chemistry have been recognised for their great work with students in a contest run by the University of Southampton Students’ Union.

The Union organises the vote each year to recognise best practice among teaching staff. Students nominate individuals are approachable and open, with enthusiasm and passion for their subjects and those have gone out of their way to support students in teaching and laboratory sessions, especially staff who have help individuals who have been struggling academically. Outstanding Students’ Union Academic Reps have also been honoured this year.

In Chemistry:

  • Lab technician John Fosbraey took the award for Best Demonstrator/Teaching Assistant
  • Dr Paul Duckmanton, Inorganic Teaching Fellow, was declared Most Engaging Lecturer
  • Dr Francesco Cuda, Teaching Fellow in Organic Chemistry, was honoured for Best Academic Support
  • Yousra Hikal was named as best Chemistry Academic Rep

This was John Fosbraey’s second award in a week. Earlier, he was named Higher Education Technician of the Year by the Royal Society of Chemistry for his ‘unstinting support and encouragement of his students’.
