I currently work at Aberystwyth University as Art Co-ordinator in Life-long Learning. My role as an educator and the need to keep learning is very important to me. I personally think that teachers need to walk in learners' shoes in order to really get to the core of learning. I have been described as having teaching "impregnated into my bones" - I think my family feels like that too at times. Recent accolades from my teaching expertise have been presented through the following awards:

 

Lifelong Learning Tutor of the Year 2018

 

Aberystwyth Student Union Celebrates-Student-Led Teaching Award 2017

 

Exemplary Virtual Learning Award, Aberystwyth University 2016 and 2019

 

National UALL Award for Innovative Curriculum Design 2014

 

Elected Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy 2014

 

Exemplary Teaching Award, Aberystwyth University 2007

 

Exemplary Course Award, Aberystwyth University 2019

 

 

 

In addition to my University role I also teach occasional courses on painting and mosaic and I lead a number of walking art-discovery tours around my home town of Aberystwyth.

 

The next tours are on 29th August and 12th September. For further details please contact: alisonpierse@gmail.com or sign up for my newsletter The Monthly Nibbler:
