Chemistry GTA recognised for learning and teaching work

Jenna Spencer-Briggs, one of the department's Graduate Teaching Assistants (and postgraduate researcher), has been awarded Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) status as part of the university's Learning and Teaching Professional Recognition Scheme. Jenna joins several other GTAs who have earned this status through their dedication and commitment to teaching.

On her Fellowship, Jenna said: "It's great that the contributions that I have made to the teaching of our undergraduate chemists, as a GTA, has been recognised". In the feedback on her FHEA application, the panel highlighted Jenna's use of video to support student learning. The video was designed and produced in partnership with Dan Jenkinson (who was recently awarded Associate Fellow HEA status) to aid the interpretation of NMR spectra in specific lab experiments.
