Reward and Recognition
Creative and engaging teaching practice is found at the LSE across all disciplines. Over the years, the team has worked with various academics from all disciplines on divergent projects. LSE Innovators integrate change to enhance the student experience, renew their own teaching practice and transform the way their discipline is shaped and taught, often by integrating educational technology. Each LSE Innovator case study is made up of a video and a short profile of the Innovator and their practices. There will be inspirational ideas that you can develop in your own teaching, and links about how the Digital Education Team can support you.
