London South Bank University (LSBU) is proud to announce that Anita Peleg, Senior Lecturer in Marketing and Course Director of the MSc International Marketing in the Faculty of Business, has been awarded a National Teaching Fellowship by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
Anita was nominated by the LSBU Learning and Teaching Committee, and is the fourth LSBU academic to be honoured with this fellowship which is the most esteemed award for excellence in higher education teaching and support for learning.
She was commended for research-led innovative teaching approaches in her specialist areas: Market Research, Public Relations, Research Methods and Marketing Ethics.
Anita was praised for her focus on collaborative, interactive and practical learning, through projects and assessments such as digital presentations, internal live projects, exhibitions and mock job interviews. She was also commended for her recent research on employability, moral education and marketing ethics.
Her commitment to embedding employability across the curriculum was also applauded, in particular that she co-founded, with colleague Melanie Godfrey, an active network of marketing alumni who regularly contribute to the curriculum through guest lectures, mentoring and offering numerous internship and employment opportunities.
On receiving her award, Anita said: "I am a part of a very dynamic team of LSBU marketing academics and I feel this award is about the dedication and success of the team as a whole.
"I think any one of us could win this award as we all work very closely together, generating innovative ideas, sharing good practice, finding new ways to apply current research to industry practice, creating a dynamic student-centred classroom environment and always putting our students first."
Jane Houzer, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Business at LSBU, said: "With teaching staff like Anita Peleg on board in the Faculty of Business, it is no accident that our marketing courses are ranked the highest in London according to the National Student Satisfaction Survey. We are delighted that her undoubted talent and expertise have been recognised in this way."
Dr Phil Cardew, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic) at LSBU, said: "The University is very pleased to see a fourth member of our teaching staff recognised as excellent within this prestigious national environment.
"As a University which places student success at the forefront of our mission, we are reliant on having high quality staff leading the field in learning and teaching practice; Anita is a shining example of this."
Anita joins Dr Gloria Gordon, Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Business, Dr Sue Starkings, Head of Skills for Learning in Student Services, and Dr Anne Ridley, Principal Lecturer in the Faculty of Arts & Human Sciences, as LSBU's fourth National Teaching Fellow. She will receive her award at a ceremony in London this October.
