OU Teaching Award

The module ‘Understanding Global Heritage’ (AD281) and Elluminate have been in the OU news recently. In 2009 Dr Susie West and IET’s John Pettit led the introduction of the live voice-based conferencing system, Elluminate, in AD281, working with Heritage tutors Kate Crawley, Stella Gambling and Brian Gurrin and the AD281 ALs.

This month John received an OU Teaching Award in recognition of his lengthy record of innovation in teaching and learning, including his work on AD281. The Arts Faculty is continuing to innovate in the area of Elluminate, with a large-scale pilot under way in the current presentation of AA100 The Arts past and present. Both John and AD281 tutor Richard Marsden are working in this pilot.
