The awards took place in the student lounge which had been transformed true to the LOTY theme, by a phenomenal group of hardworking ASA volunteers.
Thanks to all students who nominated their lecturers! It was yet another year of record nominations - 173 lecturers nominated by the students on the Albany campus.
Each nominee was invited to attend a celebration luncheon and awards ceremony on Friday 16th November. Without a doubt this is an event that once attended, lecturers strive to be invited to again.
Nominees were presented with a certificate showing the comments that students had included with their nominations and took away a LOTY ribbon and hand-made, feather book-mark, made from retired library books. Some lecturers will be adding these to their collections from past years. Most also departed with a very full candy bag! Laughter and applause eminated from the audience as they read the preview of comments on the big screen as each nominee received their certificate.
A trophy was awarded to each of the 4 college winners and some special Advocacy Accolades, a.k.a., "The Penny's", were also awarded.
