Five Texas Woman’s faculty members have worked hard for more than a year to achieve the coveted fellow or senior fellow status of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
Lisa Rosen (psychology), Leslie Koberna (communication sciences & oral health) and Lin Moore (literacy & learning) were named senior fellows. Renee Buster (health promotion) and Melissa Brown (child development) were named fellows.
The Higher Education Academy promotes excellence in higher education, advocates evidence-based teaching methods and awards fellowships as a method of professional recognition for university teachers. It supports individual professional development, which allows academic staff and faculty to keep up to date with the latest international research and best practices in learning and teaching.
The Higher Education Academy is a UK-based organization backed by a conglomerate of 133 universities and colleges of higher education. Started in 2003, the HEA framework quickly outgrew the UK boundaries, and HEA fellowship is now a globally recognized badge of excellence.
The TWU group was mentored by Jörg Waltje (Center for Faculty Excellence), who himself is a principal fellow of the HEA.
