Congratulations to Dr Trinidad Velasco Torrijos, Maryanne Dalton, Dr Robert Elmes, and Prof John Stephens on their Teaching Hero Award nominations. The Teaching Hero Awards are organised by the National Forum in collaboration with the Union of Students in Ireland. The awards provide an opportunity for students to recognise and celebrate outstanding teaching and are Ireland’s only national student-led awards for all those who teach in higher education.
Teaching Heroes are nominated by students, who submit a short personal piece that explains why the person is their ‘Teaching Hero’. The Department of Chemistry at Maynooth University is very proud of its students, who have been the real heroes during the pandemic, and wishes them all the very best of luck in the upcoming examinations.
