Best tutors from 2nd sem 2017 recognised

28 May 2018

UQ's best performing tutors in Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences for second semester 2017 have been recognised for their efforts.

Each semester, the School assesses tutors based on student evaluations and staff feedback.

Tutors in the top 10% achieved a total of 9.7 or better (out of 10.0) on a score that combined the aggregated score from student evaluation surveys with an aggregated score for a series of evaluation questions answered by staff.  The student scores are weighted more heavily.

Sixteen tutors received a certificate of acheivement and a $50 gift voucher, while those able to attend enjoyed a lunch hosted by Acting  Head of School, Professor James De Voss, on 22 May.

They tutored across courses in a range of disciplines and year levels.

Professor De Voss emphasised the important role tutors play in the School.

"Tutors are at the frontline of our teaching effort and are vital to enhancing the learning experience of our students" he said.

"We thank you for your efforts and are pleased to recognise your success by holding this celebration".

A number of the tutors were congratulated for also having received awards in previous semesters.

The School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences tutor awards ceremony takes place each semester.
