The UK and Ireland Chapter of PRME is delighted to confirm the winners of our fourth Seed Funding Competition for Developing Innovative Pedagogic Approaches and Teaching Practices in PRME.


The Innovative Pedagogy Competition was developed to encourage innovation, experimentation, and impact in PRME related teaching. It also recognises the fact that financial barriers frequently exist that prevent individuals and groups from putting their ideas into practice.


In 2023, we received a large number of high-quality submissions addressing a wide range of relevant issues. The following projects were awarded funding to a total value of £6,000. We look forward to sharing their outputs with the PRME community in due course:


  • David Anderson and Davina Bird (Lincoln International Business School, University of Lincoln), Learning the Principles of Responsible Management through Customised Card Games.

  • Dr Johanna Clancy (J.E. Cairnes School of Business & Economics, University of Galway), “A Better World Through Better Business”: Responsible Management in Action.

  • Dr Darren Jubb, Dr Vicky Lambert, and Dr Lee Roberts (School of Business, University of Dundee), The Co-creation of a Sustainability Game-based Learning Resource through Stakeholder Dialogue.

  • Dr Rosalyn Marron, Dr Helena Mary Kettleborough, and Dr Kate Seymour (Manchester Metropolitan University), Developing Spaces to Flourish: Outdoor/Indoor Eco Reflexive Learning.

  • Dr Alessandro Merendino (School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London), Dr Paula Serafini (School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London), Professor Nick McGuigan (Monash University), and Dr Nadia Gulko (Lincoln International Business School, University of Lincoln), Co-designing Critical and Creative Tools for Embedding Sustainability and SDGs in the Business Curriculum: Creating the ‘Sustainability Toolkit & Playbook’.


PRME UK and Ireland Chapter Chair, Professor Natascha Radclyffe-Thomas EdD, said of the competition:


“As a champion of transformative teaching, I would like to thank all the educators that entered this year’s Innovative Pedagogy competition and congratulate our worthy winners. Being a former judge, I know first-hand that the range of proposals is wide and the quality of entries is extremely high. On behalf of the Steering Committee, I would like to thank Dr Laura Steele and Dr Claire May for organising another successful cycle, and all our judges for their support. I look forward to seeing the impact these projects make on the teaching and learning experiences across UK and Ireland Chapter institutions.” 


We wish to extend our gratitude to the judging panel, namely Dr Anupam Mehta (Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham); Dr Neil Pyper (Birkbeck, University of London); Dr Sean Tanner (Cork University Business School, University College Cork); and Dr Lauren Traczykowski (Aston Business School, Aston University).


The competition was organised by Dr Claire May (Lincoln International Business School, University of Lincoln) and Dr Laura Steele (Queen’s Business School, Queen’s University Belfast) on behalf of the PRME UK and Ireland Chapter Steering Committee.
