HSE students have chosen the University’s best teachers of 2016/17 academic year. The students voted online via the LMS module ‘Rate your Courses’ from May 29 to June 18, after the obligatory Teaching Quality Assessment. After completing the assessment form, the students were asked to select two best lecturers and workshop supervisors. Unlike the Teaching Quality Assessment, voting was not obligatory, and the students could leave the form blank.
