The Higher Education Academy is an independent organisation committed to pursuing world class teaching in HE. The HEA runs a fellowships programme, fully aligned with the UK professional standards framework and is a mark of quality and international recognition of commitment to professionalism in teaching and learning. Dr Mick Harper has recently been awarded his Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (PFHEA) of which there are fewer than 700 currently registered internationally. PFHEA is only awarded to senior HE staff who have demonstrated sustained strategic leadership and impact in teaching and learning and is the highest fellowship to be awarded.
Mick states ‘ I am very proud to receive my PFHEA status and become the 8th PFHEA in the UoP. I look forward to working more closely with the HEA and others in the pursuance of excellence in teaching and learning’.
