The Teaching and Learning Exchange (TLE) is delighted to announce our fifth group of UAL Teaching Scholars, along with three new Senior Teaching Scholars. Recipients received their awards from UAL Deputy Vice-Chancellor Simon Ofield-Kerr at the annual UAL Learning and Teaching Conference, held this year on 21 March at LCC.

UAL Teaching Scholars 2019

  • Kelly Chorpening: Course Leader, BA Drawing at Camberwell

With a particular focus on first-year undergraduate students, Kelly’s project will create more opportunities for undertaking collective drawing activities aimed at increasing students’ confidence.

  • Elizabeth Peebles: Senior Lecturer, Fine Art, Chelsea

Elizabeth’s project, entitled Intercultural Reading Rooms, will establish a student-led discussion forum designed to explore pluralistic understandings of cultural production based on evaluation of difference.

UAL Senior Teaching Scholars 2019

As well as appointing new scholars each year, UAL Senior Teaching Scholars are nominated when they complete their tenure as Teaching Scholars, and also achieve professional recognition as Higher Education Academy Senior Fellows.

By successfully applying to become Senior Fellows, these colleagues have demonstrated excellence in student learning, and supporting others to become better teachers. This year the following colleagues received their awards:

  • Katrine Hjelde: Course Leader, Graduate Diploma Fine Art and Senior Lecturer, BA Fine Art Theory at Chelsea
  • Mark Ingham: Reader in Critical and Nomadic Pedagogies, Design School at LCC
  • Martin Newth: Fine Art Programme Director, CCW

Details of their projects were displayed in the exhibition ‘Education in Progress’ at LCC.

Our warmest congratulations to all.

Introduced in 2015, the UAL Teaching Scholars’ Award is a prestigious award that celebrates teaching at the university; it formally recognises colleagues who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.

Successful applicants receive funding and support over a two-year period to develop an aspect of their teaching practice that is designed to both impact on student learning and develop their leadership roles within the wider teaching and learning community.
