Britta Katharina Matthes, Research Associate, Department of Social & Policy Sciences
Britta said, “Preparing the AFHEA provided a great opportunity to think about my approach to teaching and learning, to learn from colleagues, and to critically reflect upon my own experience. Undergoing the process was very helpful: I feel well-equipped for handling future challenges and more confident as an educator“
Andrew Hillis, Senior Lecturer, Department of Mechanical Engineering
Jie Sui, Reader, Department of Psychology
David Williams, Technical Manager, Departments of Architecture and Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering
David said, “As a member of technical staff I have found it really interesting to consider in more detail the support that I give, and in particular the impact of the work that I do on teaching and learning within the University. The reflective process of the Bath Scheme challenged me to look at the effectiveness of changes I have made and the way I approach this part of my role. As institutional lead for the Technician Commitment I’m also especially pleased to have been awarded Fellowship as it helps to demonstrate the contribution technical staff make within teaching and learning at the University.”
Senior Fellow (SFHEA)
Sarah Moore, Senior Lecturer, Department of Social & Policy Sciences
Sarah said, “Working towards Senior Fellow really helped me think afresh about my role and experiences as a Director of Teaching. It gave me the opportunity to take stock of where I am in my career, and how I got there”.
