Dr Katie Maddock, Head of School for School of Pharmacy and Bioengineering, comments:

"I'm delighted to have been awarded Principal Fellowship status following a very friendly, but very rigorous, professional discussion.  The process has been of great benefit to me, enabling me to reflect in some depth upon my time as an educator and my journey to where I am now.  I've been supported by a fantastic mentor and look forward to being able to do the same for others."

Dr Filippo Nereo, Associate Director for Curriculum Design and Development in KIITE who co-leads the CPD route, comments:

It was a pleasure to read and hear about the teaching and learning activities taking place across the university and having a positive impact on the students’ experience. This has been an especially difficult year but the submissions are evidence of an unwavering commitment to teaching and learning amongst staff, no matter the challenges. Thank you to all Fellows, reviewers and administrative staff."
