National Teaching Fellows 2016

  • Professor Hilary Neve recognised the profound impact that education can have on the health of patients and communities whilst working as a volunteer doctor in Tanzania. This inspired her to make education an integral part of her career. She worked for seven years in GP education before joining the Peninsula Medical School in 2002. Hilary’s passion, as a GP, for providing high quality ethical, equitable and patient-centred health care, underpins her educational work, along with a deep interest in pedagogic ideas and scholarship.

  • Since completing a doctorate as a mature student at the University of Sussex, Professor Maggie Andrews has gained experience of teaching, research and management in higher, further and adult education. She came to the University of Worcester in 2010, and was appointed Professor of Cultural History in 2012, and became a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy the following year.

  • You only need to spend a few minutes in the company of Professor Michele Russell-Westhead to appreciate her absolute commitment, passion and expertise for improving and enhancing the student experience, particularly in the healthcare professions. She does this by creating engaging real-world curricula and learning environments; providing strategic academic development and leadership; and involving students, employers and other key stakeholders in the design of degrees, policies and processes of the university.

  • Professor Peter Corvi has been teaching Finance for the past two decades. During that time, he has taught a wide range of UG, MBA and MSc modules and has held a number of senior administrative roles including Director of Studies at the ICMA Centre, Reading, and Associate Dean (UG) and Associate Dean (WP) at Warwick Business School.

  • Professor Tansy Jessop began her career as a History and Latin secondary teacher in apartheid South Africa. She wanted to make a difference through her teaching, so she taught an alternative perspective on South African history. Students described Tansy as "an inspirational History teacher", having "a massive, positive influence opened my eyes to the reality of SA at that time".
