Elisabete Cidre wins Provost's Teaching Award
16 June 2014
Dr Elisabete Cidre, Senior Teaching Fellow at the Bartlett School of Planning, was announced as the winner of an Individual Teaching Award at the UCL Provost’s Teaching Awards on Monday 9 June 2014.
Nominated in the category for staff at the beginning of their teaching careers, Elisabete was recognised for her outstanding contribution to the learning experience and success of her students.
Elisabete’s pedagogical research is closely linked to her teaching practice and managerial leadership duties and, as such, her educational research projects aim at creating a better and more appropriate learning environment for our students as well as supporting their learning experience.
She has developed a strong research agenda and expertise in phenomenological pedagogy and innovation in urban design learning and teaching which aim to promote and foster the use of e-learning resources and technology tools that enhance the visual literacy and build self-directed reflective learning capacity in undergraduate planning students.
These resources were developed with tutors and students as active partners and participants, whilst acknowledging students as agents of change.
