Peny Sotiropoulou – Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

PhD student Peny Sotiropoulou has recently been made an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

During her PhD Peny has been enrolled in the ROTOR scheme which is supported by the Doctoral College. This meant that alongside taking up teaching/demonstrating opportunities, Peny has been working towards a professional qualification which required her to demonstrate an understanding of specific aspects of effective teaching, learning support methods and student learning. Peny has successfully done this and met the criteria set out in the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education.
