WMG Principal Teaching Fellow receives top teaching accolade
Graeme Knowles, one of our Principal Teaching Fellows, has been awarded a prestigious Warwick Award for Teaching Excellence (WATE) 2017.
The awards highlight the effort all the teaching staff across the University of Warwick make to provide outstanding learning environments for our students. Over 80 were nominated with just five members of staff being recognised as worthy WATE award winners.
Graeme explains: “I’ve always felt honoured to work with the talented and inspiring staff and students at Warwick, so I’m particularly grateful to receive the WATE Award, because it represents recognition from colleagues and students for the efforts and skills of the teaching community here.”
Graeme is a Stream Leader for the MSc in International Technology Management and runs the HSBC PGA in Leading Business Improvement. He is chair of the WMG Technology Enhanced Learning Committee, which is responsible for supporting pedagogically relevant technological innovation in WMGs learning spaces and teaching practices.
In 2016 he founded (and currently chairs) the WMG Pedagogy Interest Group (PIG) which seeks to support and engage staff and students with pedagogical theories and practices to improve the learning environment. The work of the PIG, particularly in respect of the new Pedagogical Internships for students, was commended by the recent Institutional Review of Teaching and Learning.
He is also a member of the Teaching and Learning Committee, which takes responsibility for all aspects of curriculum management, programme quality and academic integrity of our teaching provision within WMG.
Graeme is a Fellow of the Warwick International Higher Education Academy, and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He runs the Quality Systems and Quality Techniques undergraduate modules and is also a module tutor for the MSc modules Process Improvement Using Six Sigma and Embedding and Sustaining Business Improvement in the UK, and Quality Management and Techniques in Thailand. In addition he also contributes to a number of other modules at both undergraduate and MSc level.
