ACADEMICS from Teesside University have been honoured for their work.

Dr Mark Simpson, Dean of the School of Social Sciences & Law, has been awarded a Principal Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

He has become only the second academic from Teesside University to receive the accolade.

The Principal Fellowship is the highest fellowship bestowed by the HEA and is awarded to a select number of academics who have excelled in the strategic leadership of teaching and learning.

Three lecturers who all worked together before moving into academia have also each received honours for their work.

Senior lecturers in Medical Imaging Peter Walker-Birch, Robert Dash and Mark Widdowfield have been awarded Fellowships from the HEA.

The three colleagues first met at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead where Mr Dash was the superintendent radiographer in main X-ray.

They now work together to share their knowledge with students in Teesside University’s School of Health & Social Care.

Professor Paul Keane OBE, Dean of the School of Health & Social Care in Middlesbrough, said: “We are extremely proud of the success of our students and staff and this recognition for Peter, Robert and Mark is a testament to all of the hard work and dedication they have shown over the years."
