In the Sunday Times University Guide 2013, History at Loughborough has been ranked 5th, ahead of many other top competitors. Many congratulations to Prof Chris Szejnmann and his colleagues within the department of Politics, History and International Relations. This is a fantastic achievement for a small team that is committed to teaching excellence, as is reflected in the fact that they scored higher in this area than any other institution. Well done! Chris attributes some of this success to the teaching innovations he and his colleagues have introduced over the last few years, some of which you can read about on the E-learning Blog – see for instance https://blog.lboro.ac.uk/elearning/?p=2043 .
