We are actively looking to increase the proportion of our reviewers from groups currently underrepresented. This includes Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff, those on part-time, sessional and fractional contracts, and colleagues from Professional Learning Service roles.
Our new reviewers should have significant teaching and learning experience across a variety of roles and HEA Fellowship, ideally at the level of Senior Fellow and above.
Acting as a reviewer for NTFS or CATE provides a fantastic opportunity to keep abreast of recent practice of excellence in teaching and learning and to gain insight into the Award schemes.”
Karen Hustler, Assistant Director Fellowship and Awards at Advance HE
Reviewing NTFS submissions felt like an appropriate way of giving back since my own National Teaching Fellowship was awarded in 2014. It is also a means to develop myself as it feeds my interest in the nature of excellence and how it is understood within the context of HE teaching.
“I benefit from seeing the range and diversity of applications which gives me an opportunity to learn and reflect. I gain immense insight into how different subjects, learning environments and individuals work and how they constantly strive to enhance learning for their students.
“It is both a challenging and fascinating experience and I urge anyone with an interest to give it a go.”
Dr Ruth Pilkington, NTFS reviewer, Principal Fellow and National Teaching Fellow 2014
All new peer reviewers will be required to undertake a moderation exercise in February and early-March 2020.
