I am a teaching fellow and learning developer delivering teaching across undergraduate and
postgraduate programmes at Keele University, offering curriculum design consultancy across Keele’s
Faculty of Medicine and Health Science, while lecturing across Keele’s Masters in Higher Education
Practice. I also created and project lead Keele’s annual JADE Student Learning Undergraduate
Conference. In addition to CeLP, I hold SFHEA and CMALT status, whilst also standing as a member of
the LearnHigher working group. You can view Chris’s full university webpage

How can I help learning developers?

I have quite a broad range of practice and research interests and would happily collaborate/support
fellow LD practitioners across the sector. I have a real passion for, and interest in, undergraduate
research and have also conducted funded research into inclusive and universal design, international
student transitions and academic writing and reading retreats alongside colleagues at Keele University. I
currently work as reviewer and mentor for Keele’s HEA accreditation scheme and the CMALT process so
would be more than happy to assist colleagues looking towards these schemes too.
