HEA Principal Fellowship awarded

David Taylor

David Taylor, from the School of Medicine, has become the first member of Liverpool University staff to achieve a Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

Principal Fellowships, the highest level of Fellowships available,  are awarded to those who have a sustained and effective record of impact at strategic level and demonstrate a wider commitment to academic practice and strategic leadership in teaching and enhancing the student learning experience.

Professor Stephanie Marshall, Chief Executive, HEA commented: “Principal Fellowship is a key milestone in the career of any learning and teaching professional in higher education. Students deserve the very best learning and teaching during their time in higher education, and the various categories of HEA fellowship indicate that a standard has been met.”

David said: “I am delighted by this external recognition and very grateful to my students and colleagues in the Medical School and wider University who have supported my development as an educator over the years. I would encourage colleagues to look at the HEA’s professional standards, and apply for professional recognition. The University of Liverpool Teaching Recognition and Accreditation (ULTRA) framework has been developed to make the process easier and more user friendly.”

The Higher Education Academy is a national and independent organisation, funded by the four UK HE funding bodies and by subscriptions and grants, which champions excellent learning and teaching in higher education.
