Mr Robert McKerlie

  • Lecturer (Dental School)

Biography

Robert McKerlie took up post as a Instructor in Dental Technology at the University of Glasgow Dental School in 1995.  In June 1998 he was awarded a Certificate in Education from the University of Strathclyde. 

He graduated with a MSc (Med Sci) from the University of Glasgow in December 2004, his research investigated the utility of computer assisted learning within dental education.  

In 2005 he was appointed a University Teacher in Dental Technology, Glasgow Dental School and completed the New Lecturer and Teacher Programme at Glasgow and was awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice in 2007. 

He is a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy. 


Research interests

Robert’s main research focuses on Teaching and Learning and he led a group investigating the utility of syndicated learning, work that was supported by a modest grant from the Learning and Teaching Development Fund (LTDF), University of Glasgow.   

As a member of a Learning Community of University Teachers at the University of Glasgow, Robert developed his interest in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL).  Along with two colleagues from the Learning Community (Dr. Lorna Morrow, Department of Psychology and Dr. Jane MacKenzie, Teaching and learning Centre) and assistance from the University of Glasgow Chancellor's Fund Robert has developed a web-based resource (beSoTLed - http://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/leads/staff/sotl/) aimed at supporting academics engagement with SoTL. This is an important resource that is utilised by those enrolled on the Post Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) at Glasgow University.

With a focus on developing and encouraging student engagement in learning and teaching within the BDS curriculum Robert:

  • Led the development and implementation of a self-selected study module (SSM) in eLearning where students work in partnership with academic staff to develop learning objects that will be integrated into the curriculum for future years. In the first year of this SSM the group won best presentation at the University of Glasgow Learning and Teaching Conference.
  • established a TELT Partnership Group that provides the space for staff and students working together to study, design, review and implement technologies to enhance the learning and teaching experience.
  • Assisted with the development of Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) within the BDS Curriculum.

In 2012 Robert was awarded a University of Glasgow Teaching Excellence Award (http://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/leads/staff/awardsandfunds/teachingexcellenceawards/) of a 'Career Distinguished by Significant and Sustained Commitment to Excellence'.

In 2016 Robert was awarded a further University of Glasgow Teaching Excellence Award as a member of the Dental School Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching (TELT) Team. The TELT Team were also awarded a College Teaching Excellence Award in the same year.


Teaching

Robert leads in the teaching of Dental Technology within Restorative Dentistry and alongside his core teaching responsibilities of delivering aspects of Dental Technology to both undergraduate and post graduate dental students Robert is also fulfilling the role of Course Coordinator for level 2 (BDS2) and is an active member of the Dental Education Committee.
