New Fellows of the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA)

The Department is pleased to announce that Dr Simon Pope, Dr Robin Purshouse and Dr George Panoutsos have gained the status of Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA).

This is a result of their recent successful completion of the Certificate in Learning and Teaching, at the University of Sheffield. 'CiLT' is a postgraduate level course specifically designed to meet both the needs of staff new to Higher Education and to the research-led environment of the University. It combines workshops, independent study and work-based activity such as teaching observation to introduce academics to the knowledge, skills and principles required to be an effective teacher.
