National Teaching Fellow 2001
David is a part-time higher education consultant who used his fellowship in order to build support for colleagues wishing to innovate, learn and develop good practice through the effective use of communication and information technology. He has since developed an innovative and interactive web-based course for new teachers of law that will be made available in 2009. This includes various strategies for introducing teaching and learning innovations into lectures.
Prior to her joining Kingston as Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education) in July 2012, Professor Lesley-Jane Eales-Reynolds, was the Director of Learning, Teaching and Pedagogic Research at the University of Westminster. She received her BSc in Microbiology from the University of Wales and her PhD in Immunology from the University of Bath. After post-doctoral work at the Max Plank institute and St Mary's Hospital, Imperial, she joined the University of Surrey.
I was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in 2002, a University of Birmingham Teaching fellowship in 2007 and the ExxonMobil Excellence in Teaching award in 2007.
I balance an interest in the pedagogy of engineering subject delivery, teaching undergraduates and technical research in the subject of microstructure/property relationships in steels. I also take an active role in public engagement of science and engineering, having held various grants in this area. I gave the British Association Isambard Kingdom Brunel Award lecture in 2006.

Susan used her fellowship to research ways to assist and support academic staff with the implementation of networked learning, specifically the use of Virtual Learning Environments(VLEs), so that they become an integral part of teaching practice.
