This new award is for academic and support staff at UAL who demonstrate excellence in teaching and support.
The title is held by successful applicants for two years. Teaching Scholars also receive £5,000 project and development funding, a special responsibility allowance and professional development support to become a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Receiving the title alongside Paul were Anne Marr (Course Leader, BA (Hons) Textile Design, CSM), Fred Meller (Course Leader, BA (Hons) Performance Design and Practice, CSM) and Dr. Natascha Radclyffe-Thomas (Course Leader, BA (Hons) Fashion Marketing, LCF).
The awards were presented at the 2015 Learning and Teaching Day by Professor Susan Orr.
Speaking about his achievement, Paul said:
“This is a fantastic initiative from UAL that really recognises that teaching is central to our practice and I am delighted to be with such a great group of fellow scholars.
“I’m really looking forward to building on all our work and collaborating together over the next two years”.
