Dr Kyriaki Anagnostopoulou, Associate Dean and Associate Professor of Bath Spa University’s Institute for Education, has been awarded a prestigious National Teaching Fellowship for her ongoing educational innovation.
The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) celebrates and recognises individuals who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the teaching profession in higher education.
With expertise in the field of technology-enhanced learning, Dr Anagnostopoulou’s work has influenced educational policy and practice nationally and internationally. She actively researches and evaluates new technologies for education, and supports high quality learning experiences through the transformation of student learning and institutional thought-processes.
“I am hugely honoured and delighted to be awarded a Fellowship,” said Dr Anagnostopoulou, who is one of just 54 recipients this year. “Throughout my career I have been focused on discovering the ways in which technology can enhance teaching and, consequently, the experience and outcomes of learning for students at Bath Spa University and beyond. As technology evolves, so we as teachers and education policy makers must ascertain how it can best support us so that we can continue to engage learners of all ages.”
Dr Anagnostopoulou has led large scale organisational change projects and has extensive insights into initiatives aimed at mass educational impact in the UK and in India, meant to make a real difference by reaching diverse populations in inclusive ways. As a thought leader, she has presented at over 50 national and international conferences where she has championed technology-enhanced learning, the student experience, organisational change and higher education innovation.
Professor Kate Reynolds, Executive Dean of the Institute for Education, added: “Congratulations to Kyriaki on this tremendous achievement of which she is very deserving. Her expertise has led to the transformation of learning experiences, both nationally and internationally, and she is truly passionate about effecting change for the benefit of students across the world.”
