The Student Led Teaching Awards, which are awards for academic staff as nominated by students, received over 200 nominations and included awards for Employability Enhancement, Assessment and Feedback, Learning Resources, Course Rep Champion, Support Staff Member of the Year and Teacher of the Year, as well as Postgraduate Supervisor of the Year. Professor Peter McOwan, Vice Principal for External Affairs and Public Engagement, and Professor Susan Dilly, Vice Principal of Teaching and Learning, gave speeches and presented awards to the recipients.

The Education Awards gave us the chance to celebrate QM's community approach to enhancing the student experience.
