It’s that time of the year again – voting for your best lecturer and letting them know that they are appreciated.
From 1995, the University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA) has instituted lecturer of the year awards as a platform for students to voice their opinion and channel their appreciation to the most deserving lecturers from all across the University. Don’t let the title fool you; you can also nominate your favourite administrator, supervisor or simply someone of great character for the year. If this wasn’t fun enough, you can also make up your own lecturer award criteria and the form clearly instructs you to “get sassy” with the criteria. What more can you ask for? You get to be cheeky and get away with it? I’d take that!
By nominating, you are actually voting by filling this online nomination form http://surveymonkey.net/s/loty2014 (yes, of course it’s Survey Monkey!) so you don’t have to fill out another form to vote. The survey link also includes the specific criteria for each award and a few requirements to support your nomination.
If this isn’t enticing enough and you need a little more incentive, then you should know that by simply nominating someone worthy, you are entering yourself into a draw where four $50 vouchers are awarded to be used on campus cafés and bars. Don’t tell me that free food and drinks are not a good incentive! So go on-line and get nominating.
