Dr Ioannis Oikonomou wins Teaching Excellence Award
As part of the annual Reading University Student’s Union (RUSU) Excellence Awards, students at the University of Reading were asked to nominate staff that they believed to have gone above and beyond expectations.
The RUSU website cited Dr Oikonomou’s “passion for enriching [students’] knowledge and practical expertise" along with his “innovative assessment methods” as some of comments from students that contributed to his win.
“I am honoured and moved to be the winner of this award,” Dr Oikonomou said, “to have even been nominated amongst so many talented teachers is a great pleasure. Thank you to all of my students.”
The Teaching Excellence award is one of four given out each year to passionate teaching staff who have applied their in-depth subject knowledge to provide students with engaging and intellectually stimulating lectures.
Other ICMA Centre staff nominated for RUSU Excellence awards include Senior Visiting Fellow Richard Comotto and Associate Professor in Finance Dr Michael Smith, as well as Martyn Drage and Graham Philpott from the careers team.
