Professor Christine Rivers recognised for tremendous teaching impact
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme recognises and celebrates educators from across the United Kingdom who have made a tremendous impact on student outcomes and the teaching profession in higher education.
Advance HE cited Dr Rivers’ trailblazing work as Director of Learning and Teaching and Co-Director of Surrey Business School’s Centre for Management Education (CME), where she has pushed to improve the student experience and advocated for hybrid education.
"I am honoured to be awarded the prestigious National Teaching Fellowship 2021. I thank all of my colleagues who have provided their support over the year. This would not have been possible without the encouragement and endorsement for my innovations in learning and teaching, which in turn have had a positive impact on staff and students at Surrey and beyond." - Professor Christine Rivers
Professor Osama Khan, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Education, at the University of Surrey, said:
“On behalf of everyone at the University of Surrey, I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to Christine for this much-deserved recognition. Our sector, and indeed the whole world, has experienced a difficult two years thanks to the unique challenges brought by Covid-19. However, Christine’s passion for questioning the status quo and her advocacy for hybrid learning – all in the pursuit of improved learning outcomes – has been invaluable to our University’s stability and progress during this unsettled period.”
