OneHE, the global network for educators, has announced the appointment of Dr Nicolas Labrosse as the convenor of its Global Subject Centre for Physics – among the first of a total of 30 Global Subject Centres that are planned. Further announcements are scheduled.

Dr Labrosse is Senior Lecturer in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow, where he has held major roles to support students and enhance learning and teaching. He holds a Senior Fellowship of the University of Glasgow’s Recognising Excellence in Teaching. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and chairs its Higher Education Group committee.

Making the announcement, Managing Director Dr Mark Jones said “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work further with Nicolas. Since OneHE’s formation, Nicolas has been an enthusiastic supporter. We have every confidence that that enthusiasm together with his passion for learning and teaching in his subject, will mean that the Physics Global Subject Centre will drive inclusive, innovative practice in the discipline.”

Commenting on his appointment Dr Labrosse said: “It has been truly exciting to be engaging with OneHE since its very beginnings. OneHE has become the platform I use to network with like-minded higher education colleagues from all continents, and exchange ideas in learning and teaching. I look forward to stimulating discussions within the Physics Global Subject Centre and to the development of innovative, collaborative member-led projects.”

As a convenor, Dr Labrosse will lead discussion and debate in the Global Subject Centre and, in return, receive free membership to OneHE while he serves as its convenor. The appointment is initially for one year. He will also be eligible to apply for higher levels of funding through the OneHE Foundation.

OneHE is a membership platform that helps educators with a shared passion for learning and teaching to connect, collaborate and innovate in a safe space that is uniquely for them.
