GTA of the year award
The Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) of the year award is presented annually by the Faculty. The award:
- demonstrates that the Faculty of Engineering recognises the integral role GTAs perform in teaching within the Faculty;
- offers an incentive to GTAs to strive for excellence in their teaching;
- provides GTAs with recognition for inclusion in their CVs;
- encourages GTAs to talk and think more about their approach to teaching.
Each year, every department selects its best GTA and from these departmental winners the Faculty presents a highly commended award and then choses an overall winner.
The winners from each department were:
- Jan Rose (Aeronautics)
- Octave Etard (Bioengineering)
- Alexandros Nordas (Civil & Environmental Engineering)
- Anouk Zeeu van der Laan (Dyson School of Design Engineering)
- Christoforos Panteli (Electrical & Electronic Engineering)
- Sam Brooke (Earth Science & Engineering)
- Sammy He (Mechanical Engineering)
The panel were very impressed with all these nominations.
The overall winner of the GTA of the year award 2017 was Christoforos Panteli from Electrical & Electronic Engineering.
