DMU lecturer named innovative teacher of the year at 2015 Times Higher Education Awards

7 December 2015

 

De Montfort University lecturer Dr Momodou Sallah has been named the most innovative teacher in the UK at the 2015 Times Higher Education Awards.

Dr Sallah, a Senior Lecturer in  Youth Work and Community Development, took home Most Innovative Teacher of the Year, one of the most sought-after awards in higher education, underlining the quality of teaching offered to students at DMU.

Speaking after the win, Dr Sallah said: "I am absolutely ecstatic. You don't expect this and you don't work to win awards but to be recognised like this is wonderful. "This is very much a team effort, with the staff working in #DMUglobal, Global Hands and Youth Work and Community Development deserving this just as much."

Dr Sallah's win was for a series of international work experience trips he organised to The Gambia, taking the classroom out into the real world. The pioneering trips involved students helping to set up a business development hub for young Gambians; staying with local families; attending local seminars and lectures and learning about colonialism and globalisation.

I had a very great experience right from the start to finish; All the staff were really great and very helpful. I recommend SI-UK for all students who are planning to study in the UK.
