SENIOR lecturer and author Tomayess Issa has been recognised by Curtin University students with an award for Outstanding Achievement in Teaching Excellence for 2017.

It is the third time she has featured in the annual awards after winning the postgraduate coursework lecturer/tutor category last year and receiving an honourable mention as a postgraduate research supervisor the year before.

Dr Issa said she was proud to be recognised in the student guild-run awards.

“It is very important to me to be recognised by students based on the support I provide and my teaching style,” she said.

“The recognition motivates me to assist more students now and in the future.”

Dr Issa joined the university in 2001 and has supervised 79 Master (Coursework) thesis candidates during her time.

The Faculty of Business and Law academic has written and edited books about sustainability and green IT and said the earth’s resources must be protected at all costs.

“There is no Plan B for the Earth, therefore we have to take care of it. We need to act swiftly to eliminate current and future problems,” she said.
