Journalism lecturer wins award

Senior lecturer Philo Holland, who teaches radio journalism at SHU, has won the Student Nominated Inspirational Teachers’ Award for the second year in a row.

He is one of just four members of staff within the ACES faculty who won the award, which is based on the annual student barometer survey.

Students were asked to nominate staff and describe how their student experience was being transformed by inspirational teaching. 

Philo, who also works as an editor on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Stephen Nolan show, said: “It’s a huge honour to get the award for a second time. I love what I do at Hallam. To me it’s a privilege to be able to share my love of radio and online journalism with the next generation.

“It’s thrilling to see how much SHU students are engaging with radio and really exciting to see a growing number of graduates getting jobs in the industry.”

This year 277 individual members of staff in the ACES faculty were nominated for the teaching award, which was whittled down to a final four winners by a faculty panel. 

The three other award winners in the faculty were:

• Dr Osman Beg, Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering
• Dr Simon Clark, Portfolio Director – Business & Enterprise/Computing
• Liz Erett, Senior Lecturer in Maths
