Middlesex University Dubai MA Education alumna, Tasnim Saleh was selected from a pool of over 400 nominees to receive Turnitin’s Global Innovation Award for the Middle East and Africa in the student engagement category. Turnitin, a leading online originality checker used by thousands of schools and universities around the world, selected Tasnim, who graduated from Middlesex University Dubai with Distinction in 2014, to receive this award for her work with students.
Informed by her Master’s action research studies, Tasnim delivered workshops for students and teachers which led to a significant reduction in the number of reported cases of academic misconduct and a significant improvement in writing and referencing. Tasnim’s workshop series with the teachers also helped to standardize marking and feedback for written assessments across the institute, which in turn enhanced the overall student experience at the institute. Tasnim, who worked with SAE Institute as a lecturer at the time of her Master’s studies, has received rapid promotion to Course Coordinator and then to Campus Academic Coordinator since completion of her Master’s at Middlesex University.
