JENNY JOINS PRESTIGIOUS INSTITUTE

 

A second academic at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside has been elected to the prestigious Institute of Learning and Teaching.

 

Jenny Headlam-Wells, a principal lecturer in the Hull Business School and the university’s European Professional Programmes Manager, will join Christine Sutcliffe from the Department of Applied Social Science and Social Work in her new membership.

 

In one of her many roles, Jenny leads the successful Women into Management for the 21st Century programme, which is aimed at professional women who have had a career break to raise a family.

 

The ILT is a professional body for lecturers in higher education which aims to enhance the quality of learning and teaching in universities. Acceptance into membership of the ILT is a tremendous achievement and follows a difficult selection process.

 

Jenny was assessed in several categories, including teaching and support of learning, personal development and the development of effective learning environments for students.

 

“The ILT is an excellent forum for universities to learn from one another and I am very pleased to have been accepted,” said Jenny.

 

The university’s Vice Chancellor, Prof Roger King, played a key role in establishing the ILT, which was launched last June and set up as a result of Lord Dearing’s 1997 report into higher education.
