Dr John Issitt



I am a National Teaching Fellow and Provost of Langwith College. I have taught in schools, prisons, further education colleges and with the Open University for many years. I teach extensively on the undergraduate programme and supervises students at Masters level as well as teaching a programme for gifted and talented youth. I develops innovative approaches to learning in higher education particularly in collaborative writing and peer assessment.



My main interests are in the structure and presentation of knowledge and I pursue this interest through the study of educational media and through the history of ideas as related to education and learning. I study the micro-politics of educational engagement in a range of learning situations.
