Two of our academic staff have been recognised this year at the QMSU Education Awards. This event is the annual QMUL ‘OSCARS’ ceremony with 12 different award categories. This year James Busfield won the Employability Enhancement Award and Folashade (Shade) Akinmolayan won the Innovative Teaching Award.

The citation for Shade states, “Shade is vibrant and engaging in every lesson. She incorporates multiple teaching styles, involves guest speakers who are experts in the field and facilitates dynamic team sessions.
For James it notes, “James’ teaching includes case studies from external companies. This experience simulates real life working conditions, where students manage their own projects, conduct individual research, write reports and deliver presentations to audiences. It grows student skills, confidence and their ability to reflect upon future employment opportunities.” In addition, Shade (again), Crawford Blagden and Sergey Karabasov were all short listed in other categories as well. Congratulations to all of you.
