UQ's best performing tutors in Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences for second semester 2015 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 14.5 or better (out of 15.0) on a score that combined the overall performance question of student evaluation surveys with an aggregated score for a series of evaluation questions answered by staff.

Eleven tutors received a certificate of acheivement and a $50 gift voucher, while those able to attend enjoyed a lunch hosted by Head of School, Professor Paul Young, on 4 April.

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

Professor Young 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".

Five 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.

  • Imogen Bermingham (BIOL3014)
  • Lewis Chambers (CHEM1200 and CHEM1222)
