Research-informed teaching awards announced

The winners of the 2014 Research-Informed Teaching Awards have now been revealed.

The awards take place annually to recognise and celebrate Loughborough academics who have demonstrated excellence in research-informed teaching.

This year’s winners are:

Jo Bullard, Professor of Physical Geography, Department of Geography, who is developing innovative ways of using external data from NASA to help develop her students as researchers. The panel commended Jo on the high quality of her teaching and research and the way in which she helps students to engage.

Dr Marcus Collins, Senior Lecturer in Cultural History within the Department of Politics, History and International Relations, who is developing a national reputation for the impact he is having on student learning. His work was commended by the panel for the way his research informed his teaching and encouraged students to develop themselves as engaged researchers.

Malcolm Cook, Professor of Building Performance Analysis in the School of Civil and Building Engineering, who is fostering student engagement, especially through his use of relevant and appropriate case studies. His work was commended by the panel for the way it helped students engage in a variety of ways which were appropriate to their industry and encouraged them to develop as researchers.

The winners will be presented with their awards at this summer’s degree ceremonies.

Congratulations to them all!
