University teaching fellowships for 2003 have
been awarded for outstanding contributions
to teaching and the development of student
learning. Michael Manogue in dentistry, Chris
Butcher in SDDU and Mike Savage in physics
and astronomy were awarded three-year fellowships,
which provide £15,000 for a learning
and teaching research project, and an annual
honorarium of £1000. Syd Donald in German,
Celia Knight in biology and Mark Kelmanson
in applied mathematics were awarded one-year
fellowships, which provide £4,000 project
funding and a £1000 honorarium.
Dr Manogue was also chosen by Pro-Vice-Chancellor
Professor Alan Pearman and the learning and
teaching deans as the Universitys nomination
for the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme.
The University scheme was established in 2001.
Last year, fellowships were awarded to Pauline
Kneale in geography, Deborah Murdoch-Eaton
in paediatrics and Rebecca ORourke in
continuing education. Dr Kneale went on to
win a £50,000 national teaching fellowship.
