UQ's top performing tutors in Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences for second semester 2012 have been recognised for their efforts.

Each semester, the School assesses tutors based on student evaluations and staff feedback.

Tutors in the top 10% achieved a score of 5.82 or better (out of 6.0) on a score that combined the overall performance question of student evaluation surveys with an aggregated score for a series of evaluation questions answered by staff.

Twelve tutors received a certificate of achievement and a movie ticket voucher, while those able to attend enjoyed a lunch hosted by Head of School, Professor Melissa Brown, on 22 March 2013.

They tutored across courses in a range of disciplines and year levels.

Professor Brown emphasised the important role tutors play in the School.

"Tutors are at the frontline of our teaching effort and are vital to enhancing the learning experience of our students" she said.

"We thank you for your efforts and are pleased to recognise your success by holding this lunch".

Kylie Agnew-Francis and Omid Khalili were recognised for the added distinction of scoring among the top tutors in two or more courses, while Jed Burns, Lena Daumann, Alysha Elliott and Tanja Krainz were congratulated for also having received awards in previous semesters.tutors with Head of School
