The School of Education’s Dr Sue Dymoke is one of fifty-five new National Teaching Fellows announced today.

To be named as a National Teaching Fellow by the Higher Education Academy is one of the most prestigious distinctions in higher education, rewarding excellent learning and teaching.

The Fellowship recognises Dr Dymoke’s extensive work teaching, researching and writing about the teaching of poetry. She is committed to developing teachers’ confidence and creativity in what is generally considered to be a very difficult aspect of English teaching. She regularly leads poetry workshops for teachers and provides opportunities for them to meet with other poets. She speaks at teacher conferences both nationally and internationally and is a member of the education working group of the national Poetry Archive, a consultant for the Poetry Society and a member of its Poetry Class team.

Dr Dymoke joins six other University of Leicester academics who have been awarded National Teaching Fellowships:
