Otago's Most Inclusive Teachers Recognised

Inclusiveness in Teaching Awards from the Otago University Students Association (OUSA) recognises excellence in inclusive teaching and a commitment to understanding disability as a human rights issue, thus enriching the Otago experience for students who have a disability, impairment or medical condition.

Congratulations to School of Physiotherapy Associate Professor Leigh Hale, College of Education Senior Lecturer Dr Gill Rutherford and Biochemistry Teaching Fellow Tony Zaharic who were presented with this award.

We are especially proud of Dr Gill Rutherford, IEAG governing committee member and seminar presenter, who has won this award for four years in a row.

Well done Gill!

The teaching awards form part of the OUSA representation system, which aims to include students in the creation and improvement of the education experience. The awards provide students the opportunity to give positive feedback to the lecturers who stand out as high quality teachers.                                                                                                                                                                             Dr Gill  Rutherford
