Above & Beyond 2019-20
We received 281
nominations in our fourth year of the Above & Beyond recognition scheme,
but 2020 brought some challenges along the way!
This was the first
year for us to launch two new categories; Learning & Teaching and Research
& Innovation were introduced in 2020.
panel reviewed all the nominations and they managed to do this in-person just
in the nick of time, before we went into lockdown!
the Above & Beyond Team decided that the show must go on, so instead of
having the usual celebratory event at Craiglockhart, we went digital! Our
University Leadership Team put on their glad rags and filmed themselves at home
to present the winners for each of the 10 categories.
film was produced by the Above & Beyond Team and released on Friday 29 May;
