|Professor Quintin McKellar|
Vice-Chancellor, University of Hertfordshire
Why are we excited about this award?
There are over 2,000 staff at the University of Hertfordshire - that’s quite a campus full. Both individuals and teams put a masses of effort into the University – helping it be the success that it is. The Vice-Chancellor’s awards recognises and celebrates those who go that extra mile and make an outstanding contribution to the University.
Excellence in Learning and Teaching is awarded to a member of staff who ‘provides a transformative learning experience for their students and inspires and supports their teaching colleagues in the development of their teaching practice’. Quite apt for online: adopting innovative approaches for learning and teaching helps distance learning to be an engaging, rewarding experience- so much more than just lecture slides being uploaded to the internet and Mariana is a pioneer in this area.
Voted by you.
Dr Mariana Lilley has also been highly commended in ‘Tutor of the Year’ as voted for by her students! This award demonstrates ‘outstanding commitment and achievement and providing excellence in inspirational teaching.’
