Star Lecturer Up for National Award

A University of Leicester lecturer is in the running for a 50,000 award after being nominated for a National Teaching Fellowship.

Professor Clive Ruggles is a Professor in Archaeoastronomy in the School of Archaeology and Ancient History, and has been at the university for 19 years. His work is mostly concerned with archaeoastronomy, the study of beliefs and practices concerning the skies in the past. Clive is one of 82 entries for the 2002 National Teaching Fellowship Scheme. Nominees are chosen by their own institutions for their excellence in teaching. Twenty winners will be selected by a national advisory panel on 21 May and the awards will be presented at a high profile event in London on 9 July.

The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme was launched in 2000 to reward excellence in teaching and learning in the higher education sector. The scheme is administered by the Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILT) on behalf of the Higher Education Funding Council for England and Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland. It is open to all higher education institutions in England and Northern Ireland.
