Two SBE staff pick up 2019 Teaching Innovation Awards

TIA Awards (2018) winners

Teaching Innovation Awards are one way the University recognises, celebrates and promotes excellence in learning and teaching. These awards are open to all of our learning and teaching community, and applications are welcomed  from students, academic and learning support staff (photo shown is from the 2018 awards).

Two University TIAs were recently awarded to SBE staff. The first award went to Amanda Harrington, whose project investigates how to facilitate critical and criteria-based feedback in large cohorts to improve writing skills.

The second award went to a cross-departmental team that includes SBE staff. The project investigates how the use of lecture capture can be improved. The awarding panel felt that this project offered great potential for enhanced student learning engagement, whilst being a timely project, with a sound desired impact.

The team members are: Karligash Glass (SBE), Anje Conradie, Sandie Dann and Sian Williams (Science), and Sarah Turner CAP), and they are all looking forward to the outcomes of the project as it will benefit both staff and students in the long run.
