NTU course leaders awarded Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA)

Several undergraduate course leaders from the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences have been awarded the SFHEA for their contributions to teaching to and learning.

The SFHEA is an award presented by Advanced HE, whose objective is to support strategic change and continuous improvement through the development of individuals and organisations of higher education.

SFHEA is awarded to an individual if they are able to provide evidence of a sustained record of effectiveness in relation to teaching and learning. It is usually awarded to experienced staff who may be able to demonstrate impact and influence, and for their work to be known nationally.

Course Leader for BSc (Hons) Geography (Physical) Nicholas Midgley, was the most recent academic to receive this award, he told us “It was a useful way of taking some time to reflect upon my achievements over the past few years.”

“The biggest case study that I included covered fieldwork. This was both taught undergraduate fieldwork in the UK and overseas (pre-COVID when that kind of activity was straightforward) and also student involvement in research fieldwork in places such as Iceland and Svalbard”, he went on to say.

As well as Nicholas Midgley, we have seen the SFHEA awarded to several other academics within the School, including BSc (Hons) Animal Biology Course Leader Anne Carter, BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing Science (top-up) Course Leader Emily Hall, Veterinary Nursing Programme Manager Sarah Broadberry, BSc (Hons) Wildlife Conservation Course Leader Louise Gentle and BSc (Hons) Zoology Course Leader Adele Lloyd.
