Dr Nicola Abraham is Shortlisted for a Guardian University Award

Royal Central School of Speech and Drama - University of London

Congratulations to Dr Nicola Abraham, Lecturer at Central in Applied Theatre Practices, who has been shortlisted for a Guardian University Award in the category of Teaching Excellence.

Dr Abraham was shortlisted for her work integrating and embedding Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies into her teaching practice and course delivery.  Through sharing her knowledge with her undergraduate and postgraduate students, she has inspired them to use and develop these new creative tools within their own practices and facilitated their use in a range of educational, community and clinical settings.

The Guardian University Awards showcase best practice, achievement and innovation across a range of categories.  Honouring excellence in everything from teaching practice to inspiring facilities, the awards act as a sector benchmark and offer universities a seal of approval for their most outstanding work.

The Teaching Excellence award recognises an outstanding teaching initiative that inspires student learning and attainment through innovative pedagogy and places teaching at the forefront of the university’s mission.

Of her shortlisting, Dr Abraham said:

“Huge thanks to Guardian Awards for the amazing honour of being shortlisted for Teaching Excellence. I have always been, and will always stand in awe of our students, collaborators and the possibilities we can create when we work together. The integration of AR and VR into a range of our practices is important. It is a way to reach people, to overcome barriers to previously unreachable locations and to offer innovation with heart to the community. Thank you for this recognition, it means the world to me, and thank you to everyone who has allowed me to dream, to explore, to play and innovate, I’m eternally grateful”.
