Students give top marks to their teachers

As part of the World Teachers’ Day festivities, students were encouraged to give a ‘shout out’ to a teacher who has supported or inspired them to reach their potential through their studies - with this year's theme "Hat's off to teachers".

Student volunteers and staff from the Teaching Excellence and Student Engagement teams from DASE hosted a booth in Hub Central on Friday 27 October. It was inundated by students eager to praise their teachers - receiving over 100 ‘Shout out’s’ in just over one hour. It was clear that students wanted their teaching staff, both lecturers and tutors, to know about the positive impact they have had.

Here is just some of what the students had to say through their anonymous contributions:
