Dr Jos Darling receives National Teaching Fellowship award at London ceremony

On Wednesday 24 September Dr Jos Darling, Senior Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, received his National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) award at the Higher Education Academy's dinner and ceremony in London.

Only the very best lecturers or teaching support staff in higher education become fellows as the NTFS is a highly competitive recognition scheme.

One of Jos' students remarked: “In teaching Jos brings enthusiasm and vibrancy...add to this his quirky sense of humour and his connectedness with the students and it’s easy to see why he’s held in such high regard by the student body.”

Since the inception of the scheme in 2000, three staff from the University of Bath have received a National Teaching Fellowship.

These achievements underline the University’s ever-growing reputation for excellence in learning and teaching.

Jos said: “It’s great to receive this recognition at a national level for doing something that I enjoy, although the honours should equally be shared with my colleagues and students at Bath who work with me to develop new ideas in learning and teaching.”
