Winner of the 2014/15 BETA, Dr Wendy Hein

Tuesday October 20th, 12:30-14:00

From assessments that address the 'bigger picture': transformative teaching practices that challenge classrooms and disciplines

This seminar aims to provide insights into micro and macro aspects of the development of transformative teaching practices. On the one hand, it discusses practical considerations surrounding assessment design within two specific examples, and on the other hand it considers how teaching can be key in leveraging important disciplinary changes. As such it seeks to initiate debates around who, what, where and how transformative teaching practices can be implemented.

About the 2014/15 BETA

Dr Wendy Hein, who is a lecturer within the College’s Department of Management, was selected as the winner of the Birkbeck Excellence in Teaching Award (BETA) for 2014-2015. An integral part of the College’s Learning and Teaching Strategy, BETA supports and encourages excellence in teaching and learning by providing formal recognition of pedagogic achievement.

Dr Hein co-ordinates a working group within the marketing subject discipline that seeks to integrate gender equality into management education – a group which forms part of theUnited Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME).

In her teaching role she seeks to integrate these transdisciplinary approaches into her two main Marketing modules - namely consumer behaviour and public relations. Specifically, she aims to be particularly innovative in developing assessment that facilitates critical and transformative learning.

Commenting on Dr Hein’s selection for the BETA Award, lead panellist Dr Elizabeth Hoult said: “My fellow panel members and I extend our warm congratulations to Wendy for her selection for the award.

The seminar is free and all are welcome but please register
