OU's Emeritus Professor of Education, Bob Moon, was awarded a CBE in the latest Queen’s Birthday Honours List for his pioneering work in teacher education in developing countries. Bob, who joined the OU in 1987, was instrumental in introducing teacher education and training. He set up the Teacher Education in Sub-Saharan Africa (TESSA) programme, benefitting millions of teachers in Africa.
He said: "I'm really proud to have received recognition for the ground-breaking research and development made possible by the OU and other organisations. The OU has played a lead role in teacher education and training across the developing world and is now the principal expert in teacher training in developing countries."
