University of Kent lecturer is recognised as being a leading UK law teacher
A senior lecturer at the University of Kent’s Law School - Nick Jackson - has been short-listed for the Law Teacher of the Year Award 2010. Mr Jackson has been heavily involved in the development of electronic learning resources in Kent Law School, receiving a National Teaching Fellowship in 2002 in recognition of this work.
The Law Teacher of the Year award is sponsored by Oxford University Press, and was conceived in 2004 to promote the importance of teachers and teaching, and in doing so to recognise the vital role that teachers play in the education of tomorrow’s lawyers. It also gives good teachers the recognition they deserve.
Nick Jackson is one of six short-listed candidates, with the winner due to be announced at a ceremony in January 2010. The candidates were chosen on various criteria which included the need to display an active interest in the development of teaching that influences, motivates and inspires students to learn. They also have to demonstrate commitment to, and support for, the development of students as individuals.
After hearing about his nomination, Mr Jackson said, ‘I’m thrilled - though a bit bemused - to have been short-listed for this award. The judging panel’s visit should be a great opportunity to get further feedback on my teaching.’
