The Talis Award for Excellence in marketing and engaging academics is for universities that show a dedication to academic adoption, impressive and creative methods and a well executed plan.

This year, the award went to the University of Worcester. Here’s why:

It’s clear that students and Academics are at the core of what the University of Worcester do. After Talis Insight Europe 2017, Allie Taylor’s presentation made waves in the community, with many other Talis Aspire users replicating the approach. The University of Worcester have also embraced LTI and section linking so that academics really can teach the modules in the way they designed. The library team were a part of the early beta phase for the new Student List View, and were quick to gather focus group feedback to support Talis Aspire in the development of the list view. University of Worcester are an exemplar of what can be achieved in using Talis, and we look forward to continuing to work and support them over the coming year.

Sarah Pittaway, Team Leader: Academic Services the University of Worcester said “We’re absolutely delighted to have won the award for ‘Excellence in marketing and engaging academics’ and to have a special mention in the Talis User Group Creativity Award!  The Academic Services team have done an amazing job over the past couple of years, shifting the reading list conversation from compliance and mandating, to pedagogic benefits and improved student experience. The award is also a great testament to our academic colleagues who have embraced the benefits that a well-thought out reading list can bring to their students.”
