Dr Richard Harris, MA Programme Director and Secondary History leader at the IoE, has been named as one of three recipients of the 2015 University Collaborative Awards for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching and Learning. This highly competitive scheme recognises select groups of staff who have made significant, ongoing contributions to student learning and who have also demonstrated an integrated team approach to enhance teaching and learning.
One of Richard’s fellow recipients is Dr Elizabeth McCrum, formerly Director of Teaching and Learning at the IoE, now Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Science, who retains close links with Education. Dr. Catherine Tissot, the IoE’s current Director of Teaching and Learning said: “It is wonderful to see that Richard and Elizabeth, along with Dr Elizabeth Matthew of the History department, have just won this important University award. This is a recognition for the development of a History Education module. The IoE has a long tradition of sharing good practice in terms of teaching and learning and it is exciting to see that continue. The University Awards for Teaching and Learning are very competitive and therefore it is good to see their success.”
