UAL Senior Teaching Scholars

The UAL Teaching Scholar Scheme aims to enhance the student experience through reward and recognition of high quality teaching. Those who teach and support learning are significant for shaping effective learning experiences and where best practice exists UAL is committed to celebrating and sharing these.

UAL Senior Teaching Scholars are appointed on the basis that they have completed their tenure as a Teaching Scholar and have gained further recognition as a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

By successfully applying to become a Senior Fellow these colleagues have demonstrated excellence both in in student learning and supporting others to become better teachers and supporters of learning.
