Talking Teaching

August 15, 2010

Congratulations Alison!

Ako Aotearoa last week announced the winners of the Tertiary Teaching Excellence Awards.

Among the recipients is our co-blogger Alison Campbell.

The readers of this space will not be surprised: her love for teaching, for her studensts and her insights on education she shares with us on every post. As a teacher myself I admire her commitment and insight and this blog has for me become a place where I come to find inspiration from the posts and the comments.

It is wonderful to see Alison’s  teaching excellence recognized, so here is to you Alison! Well deserved!


  1. Oh gosh, thank you :-)
    I’m very conscious that it wouldn’t have come about without a whole bunch of colleagues who’ve supported my various endeavours for years now (plus let me vent from time to time!), & of course the students: their willingness to go along with the things I do has also been a big factor in instituting changes in my practice.

  2. Speaking as a colleague, I can attest that this award is well deserved! Alison is great at sharing ideas, resources, being prepared to be the ‘subject’ of critique for the purposes of helping staff here learn how to give good feedback when conducting classroom observations, and the like.

    We are all very proud of her.
