The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme is run by Advance HE to raise the profile of teaching and learning, and celebrate the individuals who make an outstanding impact on the student learning experience. It also provides a national focus for institutional teaching and learning schemes.
Success is not relative to the career stage of the applicant but is entirely dependent on demonstrating excellence. Receiving this prestigious award greatly supports individuals’ professional development in teaching and learning, and establishes them as a frontrunner in the area. On gaining the award, National Teaching Fellows (NTFs) play an active role in enhancing teaching and learning within their institutions, the higher education sector, and further afield. As of August 2019, the University of Reading has thirteen NTFs, all of whom lead in teaching and learning innovation across our community.
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme is open to both academic and professional service colleagues across the University, and our own NTFs include individuals from a wide breadth of disciplines and roles. This mix of experience is a real strength of the NTF Community of Practice, which meets every term to discuss emerging teaching and learning issues. Please see the list below for further information on our NTFs and their areas of expertise and achievement.
