An academic driven by the transformative power of education has received a National Teaching Fellowship (NTF) from Advance HE.
Dr Pollyanna Magne, currently a Lecturer in Clinical Education and Programme Lead for MSc Global Health, received the accolade for a sustained track record of impact on teaching and learning in Higher Education at a local, national and international level.
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme celebrates and recognises individuals who have had an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the teaching profession in higher education.
Following an early career as a secondary school teacher, Dr Magne started as a Widening Participation Officer at the University of Plymouth in 2001, helping pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to realise their potential in higher education, and leading the national mentoring programme. From there, she joined the Learning Development Team, enabling students to develop their academic skills.
