Gunvor Jónsson wins Special Commendation Award in Enhancing Teaching Programme
Congratulations to Departmental Lecturer Gunvor Jónsson, who has won a Special Commendation Award as part of the University's Enhancing Teaching Programme (ETP).
Dr Jónsson won the award in recognition of her reflection on 'decolonising the curriculum' in the portfolio she submitted on completion of the programme. The award is designed to recognise a portfolio in which a candidate has particularly impressed the examiners in one or more of the assessment criteria.
The ETP provides early career academic staff and teaching staff who have at least two years’ teaching experience with a structured pathway to a nationally recognised teaching qualification. The ETP is accredited by the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA), a UK-based professional association promoting innovation and good practice in higher education.
Participants submit four assignments which are developed into a final portfolio of up to 12,000 words.
Dr Jónsson is Departmental Lecturer in Migration and Development. She teaches on the MSc in Migration Studies.
