CODE fellow Leonard Houx goes Gold
Centre for Online and Distance Education Fellow Leonard Houx has been named the Gold category Learning Designer of the Year in the 2022 Learning Technologies awards.
According to the judges, "Leonard provided an inspiring example of the intersection of technology, learning and teaching operating successfully. He has a deep understanding of his learners, and his learning design draws on quality research and theory. The results speak for themselves in above-average retention rates and the academic results of the students. As more educational institutions look to widen access to non-traditional cohorts of learners via digital learning, Leonard's approach and success in the sector make him a worthy winner."
