HEA Senior Fellow success for University Campus Oldham lecturerCaroline Jones has become University Campus Oldham’s first Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Authority (HEA). The HEA is the badge of recognition for tutors, lecturers, and academics working in Higher Education. The Senior Fellow provides a case study of innovation and impact that the fellow has brought to their institution that has had a significant impact. In Caroline’s case she evidenced her approach to teaching and learning and developing strategies that incorporate pedagogical interventions alongside pastoral support. The Health and Social Care lecturer has made a distinctive impact on her course, students and the wider team with this award.
Caroline started working at University Campus Oldham in September 2016 working 3 days a week on the new Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care. She demonstrated a fantastic work ethic and determination to succeed which she has also instilled in her students.
Alongside preparing the submission to achieve the HEA Senior Fellow, Caroline is an active researcher, is reading her Masters and has shared her approaches around teaching and supporting students at UCO staff development events. Caroline’s ambition is centred on providing a high quality and relevant experience for her students. She is jointly convening our first Health and Social Sciences Conference to take place in January and involve key speakers from across the Health sector and beyond.
