Maths Lecturer receives Teaching Excellence Award
The School of Mathematics was delighted to learn that Dr. Louise Walker, Reader in Mathematics and Director of Undergraduate Studies, has been awarded a Teaching Excellence Award 2014, which recognises her achievements in teaching, learning and the student experience.
The Teaching Excellence Awards are an internal award made to academic and support staff who have demonstrated a sustained and significant commitment to teaching excellence over a number of years. Nominees prepare a submission based on evidence of their teaching practice, or their work supporting excellent practice in teaching and learning, and a short teaching focussed CV. Applicants also submit a statement of support from their Head of School or other senior colleague. Up to 6 awards are made annually by an institutional panel.
Commenting on her award, Louise said, 'I am delighted to receive this award in recognition of my teaching. I’d like to thank my colleagues and students in the School of Mathematics for their inspiration and support'.
Louise will now join the University Teaching Excellence Network along with previous winners, our National Teaching Fellows and Distinguished Achievement Medallists, to support and influence teaching and learning development in the future.
Further details regarding the scheme can be found on the Teaching Awards website.
