Charlotte Gale recognised as Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

Programme Manager for FD Sport, Charlotte Gale was successful in her application for Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

In becoming a Senior Fellow to the HEA (SFHEA) Charlotte had to submit a detailed application which discusses and demonstrates how she is meeting the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) expectations in teaching and learning.

In addition, Charlotte provided three references to support her application and then attended a panel assessment. The panel assessment involved questioning from five senior members of UH and external staff about the application and more specifically two examples of work, her collaborative practice enhancements and use of blended learning techniques to support teaching and learning.

The award means that Charlotte has consolidated her personal development and evidences her influence on others in HE. Charlotte has demonstrated a commitment to teaching, learning and the student experience through engaging in a practical process that encouraged research, reflection and development.

When asked about what this means on a personal level for her teaching, Charlotte said “Gaining SFHEA has enhanced my confidence. It made me proud to have an external body recognise the work I contribute to within my role as Programme Manager of HE in FE. Although hard work, I have enjoyed reflecting on the wide range of duties that encompass my role.”

Now as a recognised Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Charlotte will continue her work leading the Foundation degree in Sport and providing excellent teaching to her students.
