We are delighted to announce that Dr Anthony Rossiter has won a Senate Award for Excellence in Learning and Teaching.

The award was made for sustained contribution to developing the learning and teaching strategy and delivery both within the department and more widely across the University. This is a prestigious award which recognises Dr Rossiter's continued effort within learning and teaching. Dr Rossiter has notably championed the effective use of web-based learning resources such as MOLE, introduced the use of audio recording devices for students to record lectures and is a key member of the first year team in the department. He also had a key role in establishing the university-wide Mathematics and Statistics Help (MASH) centre which has been extremely successful in supporting students across engineering.

The Senate Awards for Excellence in Learning and Teaching, with categories of 'Sustained Excellence', 'Rising Stars', 'Excellence in Collaboration' and 'Excellence in Leadership', reward individuals for excellence in teaching, supporting and enhancing the students' learning experience, encouraging and promoting good practice and raising the status of teaching and learning as a scholarly activity.
