LSE teaching prizes


Every year in May, LSE awards teaching prizes in three categories:

  • Teaching Promotion Awards, given to faculty who have made significant contributions to teaching at the School
  • LSESU Student Led Teaching Excellence Awards, for those teachers who students have found most inspiring
  • Class Teacher Awards, given to graduate teaching assistants, teaching fellows and guest teachers in recognition of their particular contribution to teaching at LSE

The winners of the 2015 awards were announced at a special celebration on 5 May in the Saw Swee Hock Centre (see the photos above.)

The Awards were also featured in an LSE Teaching Special newsletter in June, along with more photos, interviews and the full list of the winners in all three Award categories.

Meantime, clicking the images below will allow you to read about all the winners in recent years (left to right  2011, 2012, 1013, 2014 - all PDFs).


Some of the 2013 winners are also featured in two films we produced that year.

In this first one Christopher Blunt and Joanna Roberts (Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method), Kostas Kardaras and Naa Akwetey (Statistics) and Lijing Shi and Sam Martin (Language Centre) talk about the teaching and learning that brought success in the 2013 LSESU Student Led Teaching Excellence Awards.

And here, Major Review Award winners Shakuntala Banaji (Media and Communications), Heather Jones (International History), Paul Keenan (International History) and Lea Ypi (Government) talk about classroom teaching, what technologies they use and what advice they would offer to new colleagues.
