TIRI Professors are working hard to ensure high quality, intensive teaching, informed by research, is delivered across the University. Preparations for our TIRI conference which takes place on the 5th and 6th July are well advanced with the TIRI Professors leading the way.

Our current TIRI professors are:

Mohammed Sadiq – Assistant Teaching Professor (Business School)

Andrew Williams – Assistant Teaching Professor (School of Creative Technologies)

Jo Daly – Associate Teaching Professor (School of Creative Technologies)

Brennan Tighe – Associate Teaching Professor (School of Creative Technologies)

Dr Gill Allen – Associate Teaching Professor (School of Education and Psychology)

Dr Sarah Telfer – Associate Teaching Professor (School of Education and Psychology)

Joanne Smith – Associate Teaching Professor (School of Health and Human Sciences)

Professor Russell Gurbutt – Teaching Professor (School of Health and Human Sciences)

Andrew Baldwin – Assistant Teaching Professor (School of Sports and Biomedical Sciences)

Dr Ianis Matsoukas – Assistant Teaching Professor (School of Sports and Biomedical Sciences)

Dr Zahra Salimi – Assistant Teaching Professor (Off Campus Division)

Neil Dougan – Assistant Teaching Professor (School of Arts)

Tom Sutton – Assistant Teaching Professor (School of Arts)

Working with their Head of School, and as a network, the TIRI Professors are responsible for:

  • Promoting and embedding our TIRI culture and practices
  • Supporting colleagues to develop their own teaching practice
  • Drive improvements in student retention, progression and employability
  • Champion the design and deliver of high quality platinum critical mass courses
  • Providing support to Heads of School on management / administrative matters

Our TIRI Professors have been having conversations about how the TIRI philosophy can be embedded across the university as part of TIRI induction events.  These sessions will be on-going as part of a TIRI action learning set – where issues, experience and ideas can be explored, shared and deployed.

The TIRI academic career track provides a route for academic colleagues who excel in intensive, research informed teaching and we aim to make an announcement about the next round of applications early in the 2018 calendar year.
