A University of Aberdeen lecturer has been nationally recognised for his teaching by his students.
Dr David McCausland, senior lecturer in Economics, has been awarded the Student Nominated Teaching award from the Economics Network which provides resources and support to economics teachers at university.
David’s students said he was able to make difficult concepts easier to understand.
His students said “he has led with his example, never refused to help a student, provided extensive feedback and consistently worked hard in providing personal comments on our work and ways to improve, always in a positive manner.”
David will be presented with his award on Tuesday September 6 at the Development in Economics Education Conference at the London School of Economics.
Angela Black, head of the Business School said “We are very proud that David’s excellent teaching has been nationally recognised. This very fitting and well deserved award is even more special because it is nominated by the heart of our community, our students”.
The Economics Network runs an annual learning and teaching award programme to both celebrate and recognise outstanding teaching.
The Economics Network is based at and supported by the University of Bristol. It receives funding from the Royal Economic Society, the Scottish Economic Society and, until November 2011, from the Higher Education Academy.
