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.
