Last Friday the winners of the 2021 MDXSU Awards were announced. BA English achieved not one but TWO impressive wins! These annual awards celebrate the extraordinary work and achievements of Middlesex University students and staff over the past academic year.
Student Voice Leader of the Year: Yasmin Al-Sahar
This award recognises the work of a Student Voice Leader within each faculty who has spent the year working hard to make changes for students at Middlesex.
Yasmin received a high number of nominations from her peers and staff due to her high-quality work and efforts towards nurturing a community within the faculty of Arts & Creative Industries. Her strong communication skills when sharing academic and industry updates were regular and accessible to all. Additionally, Yasmin received 100& completion rate on the NSS.
Academic Staff Member of the Year: Dr Adam Dalton
This award recognises an outstanding member of academic or teaching staff within each Faculty who has had a positive impact on the learning and student experience.
Adam received a high number of nominations from students sharing their positive experiences with him. As one nomination saw Adam as “a model of student-centered, innovative, and impactful teaching” and another saying “Without a doubt, Professor Dalton in this way impassions his students to pursue their dreams. He is a remarkable person above all, and by far the best educator I’ve known in my lifetime of learning”. His work has been impactful and deserving as the winner of Academic Staff Member of the Year for ACI.
Huge congratulations to Yasmin and Adam for their outstanding achievements! Thank you also to all the colleagues and students who have taken the time to submit their nominations.
