									Dr. David Kitchener

David has been appointed as a University Learning and Teaching Fellow with
responsibility for exploring approaches to meeting the needs of an
increasingly diverse student body. He has worked in secondary education, run
a Pupil Referral Unit, taught life skills in a special school and managed Skills
for Life and adult education provision in a further education college. Within the
further education college, he taught a variety of subjects including research
methodologies, textual analysis and approaches to literacy on franchised BA
(Hons) programmes for the universities of Liverpool Hope and Sheffield plus
teacher education for The University of Huddersfield. His background
therefore reflects a wide interest in working with groups of significant
developmental needs and ameliorating access to learning opportunities with
an emphasis upon exploring pedagogical solutions.

David is an active researcher and has worked closely recently with The Open
University investigating the new 14+ Diplomas, had several papers published
and is a book reviewer for the National Association of Special Educational
Needs. His PhD examined inclusive practices within the post-compulsory
sector following the 1996 Tomlinson Report, Inclusive Education, a text whose
ethos still informs his approaches to teaching and learning.
