All posts, Students, Undergraduates

Over 300 students graduate from AHSS, UL

Over 300 students graduated from the Faculty of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Limerick today, 23rd August 2016. Congratulations to all – we wish you much success with your future careers!

The ceremony also saw Dr Tina O’Toole (School of Culture & Communication) receive her award as overall winner in the University of Limerick Excellence in Teaching Award 2016.

The decision to select Tina O’Toole as the overall award winner was based on a range of indicators that define her as a truly exceptional teacher: The extraordinary rapport, connection and engagement she establishes with her students; the ways in which she creates a supportive but also challenging and rigorous learning environment; her conscientious emphasis on feedback, learning enhancement, impact and on her own professional development as a teacher were all highlighted as outstanding. Perhaps most importantly, Tina has distinguished herself by virtue of her own substantial expertise within her discipline and by pursuing a research-led approach to her teaching that brings her subject alive both within and beyond her classroom contexts.
