Newman Pro Vice-Chancellor Appointed to Awards Panel

Updated on: 06/04/2017

We’re delighted to announce that Professor Duncan Lawson, Pro Vice Chancellor – Formative Education at Newman University, has been invited to join the inaugural judging panel for a new international teaching award, organised by the Higher Education Academy.

The Global Teaching Excellence Awards will recognise and celebrate high quality teaching and learning in higher education and were launched at the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme’s ceremony last month.

The awards recognise that teaching excellence is contextually specific and will identify and celebrate a range of approaches higher education providers have developed, actioned and evaluated in support of student success.

Professor Lawson said: “I’m honoured to have been invited to join the judging panel and am looking forward to reviewing the nominations and identifying areas of outstanding practice around the world.

“While research plays a crucial role in academic communities, the quality of teaching is is just as important and it’s essential we recognise areas of best practice.

“These awards represent a much-needed opportunity to identify and share best practice around the world, enabling all higher education providers to learn from each other and ensure we continue to provide the very best learning experiences for our students.”

Applications are open to higher education providers across all continents and applications close at midnight on Tuesday 2 May 2017. For further information, visit HEA Academy.
