Three awards for teaching fellows

University fellowships for outstanding contributions to teaching and the development of student learning have been awarded to Pauline Kneale in Geography, Deborah Murdoch Eaton in medical education/paediatrics and Rebecca O'Rourke in continuing education.

Excellent peer and student evaluations were quoted as evidence to show impact and influence on students and staff at Leeds.

Dr Kneale, who was also nominated by Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Alan Pearman and learning and teaching deans for the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme, has published three books and 17 L & T papers recently, presented 19 papers and five posters at national and international workshops and educational conferences on topics including skills, personal development planning, fieldwork, student motivation, enterprise, group work, case studies and careers.

Dr Murdoch Eaton has presented educational developments and research at national and international medical education meetings, and since 1997 has had 17 publications concerning her educational initiatives and teaching methodologies. She has developed a nationally and internationally recognised special study module programme in the Leeds medical curriculum.

Dr O'Rourke's focus is on creative writing and academic literacy. She regularly publishes in cultural and educational journals and has published monographs, edited chapters, books and research reports on those topics. She has given keynotes and papers at national and international symposia and conferences. Fellowships will be confirmed once candidates' projects are agreed.
