STUDENTS have recognised a teacher at the University of Portsmouth in their annual awards.
Dr Lee Sartain, senior lecturer in American Studies, won the highest award at the university’s Students’ Union teaching awards for having the most outstanding impact on students.
The Teaching Awards reward university staff committed to excellent teaching and support to their students.
Nearly 400 students nominated staff for this year’s awards.
Dr Sartain said: ‘It is an honour to have been nominated by my students and a real shock to win the award.
‘I have been at Portsmouth for seven years and love teaching here. I also learn so much from my students who are always coming up with innovative ways of seeing the world and keeping my humour sharp – they are an inspiration.’
The awards were announced by Zulfa Kaseruuzi, the Students’ Union vice-president for education and democracy.
