Associate Professor Jimmy Winfield, from the College of Accounting, has been awarded a Distinguished Teachers Award for 2016.

Jimmy is an exceptional, thoughtful and reflective teacher. He was instrumental in designing and developing the business ethics course, which is now a core course for all undergraduate degrees in the Commerce Faculty.

Jimmy also conceptualised JumpStart as a learning intervention for first-year accounting students. The programmed is aimed at helping and empowering vulnerable accounting students on the chartered accountant stream to achieve their full academic potential. Since its inception in 2010, JumpStart has doubled the throughputs of the students who participate in the programme.

Jimmy is a most deserving recipient of a Distinguished Teachers Award. We thank him for his continued commitment to teaching and learning within the College, the Faculty and the University.

Well done, Jimmy!
