Two Winners at the EUSA Teaching Awards

Dr Dimitri Tsintjilonis and Dr Mark Aspinwall pick up awards.

Dimitri Tsintjilonis has won the 'Ian Campbell award for Best Teacher in the Humanities and Social Sciences' and Mark Aspinwall the 'Innovative Teaching' award.

Dimitri said of his win, "Thanks to all the students who nominated me - and I promise to start using Powerpoint soon." Dimitri's enthusiasm for pre-industrial learning technology is almost as legendary as his wonderful lectures. The runner-up was another Social Anthropology lecturer, Dr Lotte Hoek.

Mark won for the use of a video he made purporting to show that his lecturing had been outsourced to India.
