Susan Gollagher receives a Higher Education Academy (HEA) Fellowship at UQ.

ICTE congratulates Academic Manager, Susan Gollagher, on receiving a Higher Education Academy (HEA) Fellowship at UQ. Sue will be awarded the Fellowship at a celebratory event during Teaching and Learning Week on October 29th.

HEA is a non-profit organisation that brings the high education sector together to share teaching strategies and practice. With 120,000 fellows across the world, the HEA fellowship is a growing international recognition scheme for university educators. Sue was selected after a competitive application process to participate in the HEA @UQ professional recognition program. This program supports those with teaching and learning experience to gain accreditation through HEA. 

Sue had 16 weeks to develop a written application for the Fellowship and attended a range of support activities, including workshops, webinars, drop-in sessions, writing retreats and more. 

 “I was really pleased to be selected for the program and then to be awarded the Fellowship because it allows me to further develop and increase the quality my teaching. Since I was awarded the fellowship earlier this year, I have become a mentor to UQ lecturers to help them reflect on their teaching practice and write applications.”

Sue has been involved in TESOL education since 1992, working as a language teacher, senior teacher, teacher trainer, materials writer, program designer, and course coordinator in Egypt, Turkey, the UK, and Australia. During her career at ICTE, Sue has delivered professional development programs and academic language development programs both at ICTE and on secondment for a variety of clients from China, Thailand, Chile, Taiwan, Macau and Indonesia.

Sue's current position at ICTE involves the design, delivery and academic management of English for Academic Communication programs that aim to develop the academic literacy skills of students who have English as an additional language (EAL) in UQ Schools including Engineering, Development Practice, Law, and Architecture. She is also responsible for the management of Customised TESOL courses.
