University of Leicester academics recognised for outstanding achievement

Dr Raymond Dalgleish and Dr Alan Cann.

Two academics at the University have been recognised for their distinctive contributions to higher education.

Dr Alan Cann, of the Department of Biology, and Dr Raymond Dalgleish of the Department of Genetics have achieved the status of Senior Fellows of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).

The Higher Education Academy (HEA) is an independent institution funded by grants from the four UK HE funding bodies and subscriptions from HE institutions.

The professional recognition scheme contributes towards the professionalization of teaching, closely referenced to the UK Professional Standards Framework. This professional recognition is an asset recognised across the HE sector as evidence of expertise and commitment to enhancing and supporting the student learning experience.

The HEA works with individual academic staff, discipline groups and senior managers in institutions to identify and share effective teaching practices in order to provide the best possible learning experience for all students.
