Dr Michael Gallagher, Lecturer in Digital Education, has been awarded with The University of Edinburgh Principal's Medal for 2020. The Principal’s Medal is the highest award given to students and staff of The University of Edinburgh. We are enormously proud of the outstanding contribution Michael has made to supporting the university during 2020.

Michael received his award in the category of Education along with Stuart Nicol (Information Services Group) as a result of their efforts during the pivot online. Michael, along with a crew of very capable tutors including many from the Centre, taught 600 staff on how to teach online and worked with many programmes to redesign their courses for online teaching from March onwards.  

Enormous congratulations to all the award winners of 2020.
