This award celebrates a colleague who has inspired others throughout the year, either through the activities they have carried out at work or outside of Department life.

Teamwork / Collaboration Award – 13/07/2021
I won this award as a part of the second year project design team. The year’s second-year group project was developed in response to the challenge of creating a brand new project that could test the students and develop their collaborative working despite being separated and off-campus. The development side of the team started a fascinating project that challenged our students in a way that we had never done before, and they did this entirely remotely. The project they designed is complex and consists of many different modules developed by the individual student group members from both the EEE and EIE streams and brought together to create a working rover.

Collaboration Award – 14/12/2020
This award celebrates collaborations, which may be cross-team, cross-departmental and even cross-faculty.
I received a Collaboration Award as a part of the Lab-in-a-box Design and Strategy Team. During the pandemic, the various ‘Lab-in-a-Box’ experiments were crucial to remote learning and teaching. Designing these experiments required an unprecedented amount of collaboration and effort to coordinate. The details can be seen at this link:
Teamwork Awards – 06/07/2020
I received two Teamwork Awards, one as a part of the Curriculum Review Team and one as a part of the Remote Assessment Team. The first Teamwork Award recognises the extraordinary efforts of the staff responsible for enabling remote student assessment after the College shutdown. The second Teamwork Award given to the Curriculum Review Team is for their hard work and dedication in supporting and delivering the successful implementation of the new curriculum during the last two years, which has seen the launch of innovative approaches to teaching and assessment.
