POLITICS announces winners of Learning and Teaching Prize
POLITICS is pleased to announce the winners of its inaugural Learning and Teaching Prize. The prize will be awarded every two years to the best learning and teaching article published in POLITICS in the preceding two years.
The POLITICS Learning and Teaching Prize 2013 is awarded to: Alasdair Blair, Steven Curtis, Mark Goodwin and Sam Shields, 'What Feedback do Students Want?', Politics, 33:1 (2013)
In awarding the prize all the judges noted the thorough research that went into this project, which provided detailed conclusions from hundreds of questionnaires from two universities. They also noted its high degree of relevance, with universities in the UK facing increasing pressure to improve their NSS results and universities abroad facing similar pressure from student surveys.
POLITICS is pleased to announce the winner of its annual article Prize. The prize is awarded annually for the best article published in POLITICS in the preceding year.
The POLITICS Prize 2013 is awarded to: Fergal Davis, 'The Jury as a Political Institution in an Age of Counterterrorism', Politics, 33:1 (2013)
In awarding the prize the judges noted that this article makes a significant contribution to contemporary debates on the relation between juries and civil society, challenging traditional perspectives on citizenship and civic duty. It presents a persuasive and well-articulated account of the political nature of jury trials and their relevance to terrorism cases. Davis argues in favour of retaining trial by jury in terrorism cases, by demonstrating the positive impact of juries on a democratic society. As such the article is an excellent example of the engaged, original scholarship Politics seeks to promote.
