Many congratulations to Sociology lecturers Dr Hilde Stephansen and Dr Francis Ray White who were this evening awarded individual Westminster Learning and Teaching Excellence Awards. These are a very prestigious award, with only a small number given out each year to the most deserving candidates. Francis and Hilde were both awarded £1000 for career development.
Hilde (pictured right) was congratulated for her research-informed teaching, for transforming the quality of research methods provision across disciplines and for her collegial and collaborative approach to teaching.
Francis (pictured left) was awarded for their work in cross-disciplinary learning and teaching, and was commended for raising the visibility of LGBTQ and gender issues and promoting inclusion and diversity in the curriculum and across the University.
The sociology team is very proud of you both. Well done, and thanks for all your hard work!
