(Leicester Mercury Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge) A university professor has been rewarded in a scheme to recognise excellence in higher education teaching.
Professor Gilly Salmon, of the e-learning and learning technologies department at the University of Leicester, was selected as a winner of a National Teaching Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy.
She is the third academic from the university to win the national prize, which recognises teachers and staff in higher education for their skills.
She will receive GBP10,000 to support teaching at the university.
She said: "It's great to have on-line and distance teaching recognised in this way.
"I hope my National Teaching Fellowship award will give a boost to the teachers who are beavering away at making e-learning successful and effective for learners in higher education."
