The changing nature of the academic role in science

Changing Nature

Congratulations to Professor Pauline Ross who has presented the final report of her Office for Learning and Teaching Fellowship. The final report  shows that in STEM the challenge for an education-focused academic is to retain expertise and research currency. To address many of the challenges facing the academic workforce in science, a productive partnership between education and research-focused academics and education researchers was proposed, among other solutions. 

Pauline’s work aligns with the ACDS Fellowship project led by the Acuna/Kelder team and the ACDS project “What does a teaching specialist look like?” led by Susan Rowland.
