We are pleased to annouce that Professor Marjory Harper has won the Royal Historical Society’s Jinty Nelson Award for Inspirational Teaching.
In their citation the judges write: "Marjory’s work spans over two decades and was praise because of her commitment to supporting others’ learning and progression. However, the adjudicators are particularly keen to recognise her work in setting up an online MLitt course in Scottish history and heritage which has very successfully opened Scottish history up to a wide audience, including mature students from overseas. Building a complex, on-line learning experience that creates a sense of collegiality and belonging is a daunting task, but, Marjory’s hybrid of pedagogic strategies for developing a community of practice were trumpeted by both colleagues and students alike, with one even stating that the learning experience was life changing. She is a very worthy winner of the annual Jinty Nelson award."
