University of Winchester academic Lim Teoh has been recognised with a prestigious fellowship in recognition of his commitment to excellence in learning and teaching.

Lim Teoh, Head of Learning and Teaching in the Faculty of Business, Law and Digital Technologies and senior lecturer in Accounting and Taxation, joins 54 new Fellows across the country.

The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) celebrates and recognises individuals who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and teaching in higher education.

Successful individuals also demonstrate impact and engagement beyond their immediate academic or professional role and a commitment to, and impact of, ongoing professional development with regards to teaching and learning and/or learning support.

Lim receives the fellowship for the way he has transformed traditional teaching practice into a more interesting and effective approach through the use of digital technologies, offering new solutions to engage students towards greater success.

He has won numerous teaching awards in recognition of his creative and innovative practices to enhance students' learning. Prior to his academic career, Lim worked for a Big Four accounting firm in auditing and business consultancy for six years.

Lim said: "I believe that there are two essential ingredients for nurturing teaching excellence: the passion to innovate and the commitment to continuous improvement."

Alison Johns, Chief Executive, Advance HE said: "Congratulations to each and every new National Teaching Fellow and Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) team on this fantastic achievement.

"At Advance HE, we run the prestigious NTF and CATE awards for the UK higher education sector with enormous pride. The challenges of offering an outstanding teaching experience in recent years have been very demanding, but the sector has risen to the challenge."
