This award is presented by the Environmental Studies Department Student Council and is to recognize a Teaching Assistant for their outstanding contributions to course delivery and student mentoring.
The main criteria for this award includes their enthusiasm for course material and a positive learning environment, the ability to convey information effectively in tutorials and on an individual basis, and excellent interactions with students (in and out of class).
At the time of evaluation, all undergraduate students are informed of the award by email and asked to submit their e-votes to the Chair of the Environmental Studies Department Student Council.
The votes and comments from all undergraduate students are reviewed and tabulated by the Student Council members, and the Teaching Assistant with the highest number of votes/positive comments is awarded.
