Excellence in Facilitating and Empowering Learning award

Congratulations to Owen Evans, Sport Journalism course leader, and Dr Rodrigo Lucena de Mello, senior lecturer, who have received an Excellence in Facilitating and Empowering Learning award.

The Excellence in Facilitating and Empowering Learning awards, presented at the Annual Learning and Teaching Conference, invite University of Brighton staff and students to nominate someone they believe has gone above and beyond to improve the student experience and is an exceptional teacher and learning facilitator.

This year, over 1,150 nominations were received from students and colleagues across the University, resulting in over 500 individual nominees.

Nominees are invited to submit a statement describing their approach to learning and teaching for consideration by the judging panel.
