Congratulations to all our staff and students who were recognised for their contributions to teaching and education at LSE!
LSE Students' Union Teaching Excellence Awards
The LSESU awards are designed to recognise everyone who makes outstanding contributions to the education of students at LSE. With over 1100 nominations, the student-led awards are an opportunity to celebrate teachers from across the School who love to share knowledge, encourage research, offer great feedback, mentor students, and foster lively and welcoming departmental communities.
LSESU Highly Commended Award in Excellent Feedback and Communication:
Maria Molina-Domene (Runner Up: Derek Pillay)
LSESU Highly Commended Award in Mentoring and Personal Development:
"Steve is an outstanding supervisor both at the academic and personal level. His supervision style is unique and ought to be a role model for others. Steve's enthusiasm for a wide variety of topics and his attention to detail is unparalleled. It is inspiring to see him both roll-up his sleeves and go through pages of data tables while a minute later challenge us to think about the big picture."
“He holds weekly meetings with all his PhD advisees at the same time, which is not only great because of the regularity, but also because everybody knows what all the other advisees do. Moreover, besides his great knowledge of Economics and Applied Econometrics, he is also very helpful in steering us through the particularities of doing research (e.g. conference submissions, the publication process etc), and has helped students to go abroad for some time, visiting other departments.”
LSESU Teaching Excellence Award in Sharing Subject Knowledge:
“Her commitment to helping students surpasses that of any other teacher I’ve had.”
“She really cares about ensuring that students understand the material and explains concepts in a simple way. She is also excellent at providing feedback.”
LSESU Highly Commended Award in Sharing Subject Knowledge:
Adrien Bussy, Alkiviadis Georgiadis-Harris, and Vincenzo Scrutinio
“Dr Judith Shapiro always has an open door and over my time at the LSE has always been willing to discuss any problems I have had. She has taken a specific interest in many of the problems that I and other students have regarding courses.”
“I have never known a faculty member to put so much work and so much heart into her students. Dr. Shapiro consistently works above and beyond her remit, whether it is inspiring first years to explore research, supporting students struggling with personal problems or giving guidance to third years on graduating from the School. She always puts herself into the mentality of students and we know that she really believes in us.”
“Always available for support.”
