Last week the Higher Education Academy (HEA) announced the winners of their Doctoral Programme awards, which form part of the HEA’s strategy to undertake research to develop pedagogical knowledge and evidence-based practice in higher education. The 15 awards have been made to academics to support Doctoral studentships in fields including the impact of retention strategies on part-time mature students in HE, and unpacking the dynamics of group interaction in problem-based learning.
Professor Jonathan Parker in the School of Health and Social Care was awarded one of the studentships for a student to research male students in qualifying social work education.
This is an excellent achievement, especially taking into account the popularity of the scheme! Congratulations Jonathan 🙂
