NUAGE team host HEA visit to celebrate CATE award shortlisting

The NUAGE team (Ellen Tullo, Laura Greaves, Luisa Wakeling and John Lloyd) were shortlisted for a Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) this year. This is an award set up by the HEA to celebrate collaborative work in teaching and learning and captures the creative and innovative practice that positively impacts on the student experience. NUAGE is a module at Newcastle that has been recognised for its exemplary work in delivering multidisciplinary teaching about ageing informed by collaboration with older members of the public recruited via Voice North in the design and delivery of the curriculum. The CEO of the HEA, Professor Stephanie Marshall, visited Newcastle on the 20th September to meet the team and present them with a certificate. The team hope to continue their collaboration with the HEA to raise the profile of NUAGE globally.

Talking about the team’s success, Steve McHanwell, Director of the ERDP said:

 “This first round of CATE Awards were highly competitive.  It is a tribute to the highly innovative nature of this module and the hard work put into this project by Luisa, Ellen and Laura that their efforts have been recognised in this way by the Higher Education Academy”
