Outstanding Catz Tutors in the OUSU Teaching Awards

Outstanding Catz Tutors in the OUSU Teaching Awards

This year’s OUSU Teaching Awards took place at the Oxford Town Hall on the 11th of May 2017. The awards recognise excellence in the 2015-2016 academic year and we were pleased to have three members of St Catherine’s nominated in the ‘Outstanding Tutor’ category, after a record 895 nominations from students across the University.

Dr George Bitsakakis, who taught Economics as a Stipendiary Lecture from 2013-2016 at Catz, won in the Social Sciences category, beating fellow Catz tutor, Dr Amanda Palmer (Lecturer and Tutor in Human Sciences). Dr Jim Thomson, Fellow by Special Election in Chemistry, was also nominated in the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS) category but sadly lost out to Dr Quentin Miller of Somerville.

We’re pleased that this marks another year where Catz tutors are being recognised for being “stimulating, enthusiastic and consistently challenging”. In 2016, our Lecturer and Tutor in Maths, Zubin Siganporia was voted ‘Outstanding Tutor’ in the MPLS category and was shortlisted amongst two other Catz tutors.

Congratulations to all of our tutors who were shortlisted! The nominations act as a lovely testament to the hard work and dedication of our tutors and their relationship with our students.
