Each year, the BASR Exec awards a single Teaching and Learning Fellowship to a colleague in recognition of their contribution to the student learning experience in the study of religions. This Fellowship includes an award of £300 plus a funded place at the BASR Annual Conference. The expectation of the person receiving this Fellowship is to write a short piece reflecting on current issues/ experiences of teaching Religious Studies in HE for the BASR Bulletin and help the Teaching and Learning Rep on the BASR Exec, Steffi Sinclair, organise the teaching and learning panel for the 2022 BASR conference. However, there is a lot of flexibility in how this could be approached.
If you would like to be considered for the 2021 BASR Teaching and Learning Fellowship or would like to nominate a colleague (or have any questions about this Fellowship), please get in touch with Steffi at firstname.lastname@example.org . Your application will need to be supported by a statement that outlines the contribution the applicant/ nominee has made to the student learning experience in the study of religions in HE with reference to any of the following four themes:
- Influencing and inspiring students’ learning;
- Influencing and inspiring colleagues’ teaching;
- Innovation and development of practice;
- Personal reflection on practice.
This statement can be provided either by the applicant themselves or by a colleague supporting the application. The deadline for nominations/ applications is the 1st of June 2021. We welcome applications from/ nominations for colleagues at all stages of their careers.
