Celebrating our PGCAP Graduates 2022

Congratulations to six of our University of Leeds colleagues who have graduated from the University’s  Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP).

They have all taken part in the course designed to reflect and enhance their teaching practice and to deliver a pedagogical research project. As a result, they have also been awarded a Fellowship of the HEA and, more practically, they continue to experience the impact of the programme on their student education practice.

So we would like to offer our warmest congratulations to all of the colleagues listed below and say thank you for all of your hard work, enthusiasm and your continued dedication to student education.

The following colleagues have all graduated from our PGCAP and been awarded a Fellowship of the HEA:

  • Dr Adam Booth (School of Earth & Environment)
  • Joel Capener (Lifelong Learning Centre)
  • Dr Meenakshi Sarkar (Leeds University Business School)
  • Masoud Behman (School of Dentistry)
  • Dr Richard Bishop (School of Medicine)
  • Dr Ruth Norman (School of Biomedical Science)
  • Dr Sean Sinclair (Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied (IDEA) Centre)

The PGCAP is a post-induction programme for University of Leeds staff who make a significant contribution to Student Education at Leeds and has been running since September 2018.

Its success is bound in the commitment and engagement demonstrated by the staff members who have undertaken the programme. We have had colleagues from across the University participate, with both varied experience and diverse disciplines, sharing their practice and learning together and from each other over the duration of the course.
