Stan Bill wins 2018 Student-Led Teaching Award

Sidney Fellow, Stan Bill, has won a 2018 CUSU Student-Led Teaching Award for his lecturing

We recently announced that three of our fellows had been nominated in this year’s Student Led Teaching Awards run by Cambridge University Students Union. CUSU have now revealed that Stanley Bill (MML, Slavonic) has come out on top for the 'Lecturer' award.

Martha Krish, CUSU Education Officer, commented, "To be shortlisted in these awards is a brilliant achievement. There were 591 students who filled in the nomination form to let us know about someone who had had a profound impact at their time at Cambridge. We have had to whittle it down to just a few who we have deemed to be absolutely exceptional in their category.  To those shortlisted, I would just like to say that myself and the judging panels are big fans of your work. The judging was carried out by panels comprised wholly of students, many of whom are faculty reps, held JCR Welfare Officer positions or have roles on CUSU’s liberation campaigns."

The Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education Graham Virgo added "The Student-Led Teaching Awards is an important event in the collegiate University's calendar celebrating as it does those who teach, those who support teaching and learning, and those who provide pastoral and other support to students. Receiving an award or being nominated for an award is a particular honour since it reflects the appreciation of those who have actually benefited from teaching and learning support at Cambridge."

This is a fantastic achievement, and one that the College is very proud of. Congratulations Stan!
