Dr Linnea Soler

And of course Linnea is smiling into the camera too upper body and head visible the foreground shows some Chemical glass cylinders filled with mysterious looking colourful liquids, she holds the model of a molecule in her hand and behind her you can just make out a Study Chemistry poster and the lab's fire blanket on the wall. So if these liquids cause issues. Linnea is prepared!

Linnea is a Senior Lecturer (LTS) in Organic Chemistry and the CoSE SoTL Champion at the University of Glasgow.  She is a firm believer in harnessing the power of fun, technology, and creativity to make learning more engaging, interactive, and powerful. In partnership with her project students and her wonderful colleague, Dr Odedra, she is currently exploring a) supporting student transition to HE and b) fostering critical thinking skills, both through interactive e-resources. Linnea feels very fortunate to be able to work, and laugh with, so many of our fine SoTL colleagues at UofG and beyond. @DrLinneaSoler

Dr Nathalie Tasler

Nathalie's Christmas selfie. As usual her inability to take sensible selfies shows, she looks at the camera out of the corner of her eyes because she took the angle all wrong and tilted her head. It's a headshot showing top of shoulder. But there is a pretty Christmas tree in the background. Let's focus on the christmas tree with fairy lights, pine cones and silver and white baubles.

Nathalie is Senior Lecturer in Academic and Digital Development at the University of Glasgow. She is passionate about translating creative pedagogy into HE context and helping colleagues to become SoTL. Both missions focus on the continuous improvement of learning experience & teaching practice. Otherwise, you can find her on a mountain bike, or a mountain, on or in the sea, a loch, or woods, or covered in paint from the latest art project, or writing poetry–did we mention ADHD?
