Dr Sue Dymoke, Reader in Education and National Teaching Fellow from our School of Education has won a national accolade.

Dr Dymoke, pictured, was awarded the Terry Furlong Research Award 2017 by the National Association for the Teaching of English (NATE) at the annual NATE conference dinner on 23rd June.

She said: “I feel deeply honoured to receive such recognition from research and teaching colleagues in my field. I have been a member of NATE for over 30 years since I trained to be a teacher."

In presenting the award, Dr Simon Gibbons of King's College, London commented that the award is in recognition of Dr Dymoke’s extensive and influential published research on poetry teaching and learning. He talked of how he always sends his own PGCE students to her work. He also commented on Dr Dymoke’s role in raising the profile of NATE's blind peer reviewed research journal (English in Education) during her time as its editor (2010 - 2015).
