Nottingham Law School (NLS) principal lecturer, Jo Boylan-Kemp, has been short-listed in the Most Innovative Teacher of the Year category of this year's Times Higher Education (THE) Awards.

The THE Awards, which are widely recognised as the Oscars of the higher education sector, attract hundreds of entries that exemplify the talent, dedication and innovation of individuals and teams across all aspects of university life.

A 2015 Vice-Chancellor's Teaching Award winner, Jo was one of the first Nottingham Trent University academics to adopt the innovative SCALE-UP approach, in which students learn through group problem-solving activities in a bespoke, technology-rich classroom.

Jo blends a number of teaching methods to strengthen the student learning experience and is creative in her development of unique learning materials in order to create a rich and stimulating learning environment.

Professor Edward Peck, Vice-Chancellor, Nottingham Trent University, said: "This is a tremendous achievement for Jo to be short-listed for a Most Innovative Teacher of the Year Award.

"The Times Higher Education Awards recognise outstanding examples of best practice during the 2013/14 academic year and the category which Jo has been short-listed for recognises how her imagination and passion have transformed a course and inspired students.

"Last month, the University achieved its highest ever ranking in the National Student Survey – a climb of 15 places to 46 out of 157 in the UK – which shows how we are continuing to gain national recognition for the quality of our teaching. It also reflects the tremendous efforts our staff have made to improve the university experience for students."

The winners of the THE Awards will be announced on 26 November at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
