Award- winning project and academic leadership celebrated

by George Joseph

An award-winning UWS dementia project has been unveiled as part of a collaborative national educational resource. 

The Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice at UWS was awarded its first CATE in 2020. The ‘CATE Collection: together in collaborative educational leadership ’ captures the spirit of Advanced Higher Education’s Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence also known as CATE. It supports conversations around good practice in higher education.

The Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice at UWS was awarded its first CATE in 2020, for its pioneering dementia-focused ‘Class in a Bag’ initiative. Class in a Bag is a portable intergenerational education resource used by student nurses to teach schoolchildren about dementia and how they can help support people living with the condition.

UWS’ Professor Debbie Tolson is one of four co-editors chosen to lead the inaugural CATE Collection. Debbie said: “It has been an honour to edit the CATE Collection, which includes inspiring stories from across a range of disciplines.I am delighted that our UWS Class in a Bag was independently selected as one of the feature chapters, and our work will be shared more widely through this resource.”
