Teaching and learning

Few can match the proud tradition of Plymouth University in the field of achieving fellowships. In total, 20 members of staff have become National Teaching Fellows. Six have been awarded in the last four years alone, this year’s recipient being Debby Cotton, Professor of Higher Education Pedagogy. Debby, like so many of those Fellows who precede her, has an international reputation for her work in areas such as sustainability pedagogies in higher education, the impact of technology on how students absorb information, and the experience of care leavers at university.

Professor Pauline Kneale, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Teaching and Learning, said: 

“This award demonstrates again just how many influential thinkers, theorists and practitioners we have in our teaching line-up that so many have been made Fellows over the years.”
