Sally Brown

Since her retirement from what is now Leeds Beckett University, my wife is even busier than ever, particularly leading sessions on assessment, and for staff applying for HEA Fellowships – and on all sorts of other things. For more details, and slides and handouts from all her workshops, please go to Sally’s website: but please note Sally’s main email is now  rather than her former one as Leeds Met changed its name.
She is currently the Chair of the Committee of the Association of National Teaching Fellows, (ANTF) and has recently led the Association’s response to the Green Paper introducing the proposed Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
