Established by the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning earlier this year, the Awards recognise and celebrate the contribution that students make to enhancing educational practices at the University of Cambridge through their voluntary or extracurricular activities.

Staff and students were asked to nominate an individual or a group of undergraduate or postgraduate students who they thought made a significant positive impact on the educational experience at Cambridge, in one of four categories, including: Inclusive Practice, Inclusive Practice (Access and Outreach), Peer Support, Academic Representation, or College Representation.

Eva is a Laing O’Rourke Centre PhD student in the Construction Information Technology Laboratory, part of the Laing O’Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology. She was awarded Highly Commended in the category of Academic Representation – Departments/Faculties, and received a certificate signed by the Senior Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education, Professor Graham Virgo.

Eva was nominated for the Awards in recognition of her teaching contributions to the Department of Engineering via the Constructionarium course – a Part IIA project offered to third year engineering students which aims to provide hands-on construction experience. Eva was also nominated for her service as Student Representative for the School of Technology Council during the academic year 2018-19.

"I hope to inspire students and highlight the value of student representation in shaping education for future generations," said Eva.
