Dr Laura Moretti, University Lecturer in Pre-modern Japanese Studies, has been given a student-led teaching award by the Cambridge University Student Union. Students were invited to nominate the lecturers, supervisors, pastoral or student support staff that have really enhanced their education. Dr Moretti has been given an award in the lecturer category, for her enthusiasm and engagement with her students as a lecturer.
The awards are a unique opportunity for students to recognise the exceptional contribution their teachers have made to their education at Cambridge. Any student at Cambridge is able to nominate, and the judging is carried out by a panel of students working alongside the Students’ Union. When submitting a nomination, students are asked to explain why their chosen member of staff should receive an award- these testimonies enable the awards to be judged and highlight the outstanding contribution of so many teachers within the university.
