We are delighted that Susan Kemp has been selected as the winner of the 2011/12 EUSA Teaching Award for Developing Student Employability.
These awards are designed to recognise and reward excellence in teaching across the University of Edinburgh, and are nominated and judged by students. In addition to commendations for her work in developing students’ professional skills and building relationships with the industry professionals, Susan’s role in initiating and managing the Film in the Public Space collaboration with the Glasgow Film Festival was particularly appreciated by students.
Film in the Public Space received nominations for Best Course, and Susan and Jane were nominated for excellence in teaching. The MSc in Film Studies was nominated as Best Course and also received nominations for excellence in teaching.
Congratulations to Susan for her deserved win (and gracious acceptance speech) and many thanks to our students for championing Film in the Public Space.
