Last week, the School of Education's Professor Sally Barnes was presented with a Distinguished Service Award for her 40 years service to the University.
In 1979, Sally's first appointment was as a secretary after which she moved into a research appointment completing her MPhil in 1984 and PhD in 1994. During Sally's time at Bristol she has made a significant contribution both to the School, the Faculty and the wider University. She developed and taught research methods to masters and doctoral students both here and in Hong Kong on our PhD and EdD programmes. She also won several research grants exploring the use of technology in teaching and learning in secondary education and HE. Sally's contributions to the University more widely include serving as Graduate Dean (2009-2018), PI and Director of the ESRC SouthWest Doctoral Training Partnership since 2010, and Deputy Director of Bristol Institute for Learning and Teaching since 2018. In addition to all this, Sally is a great colleague and is able to recall all the policy changes, including U turns, that have occurred in the School and the University over the last 40 years!
Many congratulations to Sally on her 40 years of distinguished service....and counting!
