Research award honour for Bath professor

Professor Jeff Thompson has been honoured by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) for his achievements in establishing the research profile of the organisation and for his contributions to research in international education through the IBO for almost forty years.

Professor Thompson, from the Department of Education, was praised at a celebratory dinner held in Cardiff recently.

The IBO has announced that they will fund a new research grant scheme, open by competition to teachers and school leaders based in IB schools worldwide, which will annually award Jeff Thompson Fellowships to those selected as principal investigators.

Speaking of the award Professor Thompson said: “Most of my own academic life has focused on encouraging the improvement of practice in the promotion of international education, by teachers and administrators, through personal research. I am, therefore, honoured and proud to be associated, on a continuing basis, with support for practitioners through such a scheme."
