Associate Teaching Professor, Dr Duncan Cross, has received a prestigious national teaching award for excellence. He was named a National Teaching Fellow in an announcement from Advance HE in the summer and he collected his honour at a special ceremony in The Whitworth Hall, University of Manchester.
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) showcases the outstanding impact of individuals who teach or support learning in UK higher education. It recognises their success and provides a platform to share the learning from their practice. A total of 54 new NTFs were announced across the UK on 5 August.
Afterwards, Dr Cross said: “‘It was a fantastic event to share excellent practice from across the sector. I’m thrilled to have received the award and to represent Bolton.”
Dr Kondal Reddy Kandadi, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Bolton, said: “It is great news that Duncan has been named a National Teaching Fellow and demonstrates the high level of expertise in teaching that we have at the University of Bolton.”
Alison Johns, Advance HE’s chief executive, said: “Congratulations to all our 2019 winners of these prestigious, national awards. Becoming a National Teaching Fellow or winning CATE team is a huge achievement. It can be truly life-changing.”
