About Sally Brown

Having worked in education all my working life in education of various kinds (school teaching, FE lecturing, working for the prison and probation service, as a home tutor, as a playgroup leader, but mainly in higher education: full details on CV downloadable here:   Sally-CV-July-2017-w.docx (305 downloads) )
I am now an independent consultant, thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to work in higher education institutions in the UK and internationally.

I offer keynotes, consultancy and highly interactive workshops on assessment, teaching, learning and particularly assessment, in higher education, as well as managing change, enhancing the student experience, getting published and internationalising higher education. I publish widely across the full academic range of outputs (books, journals, informal articles) and am currently particularly interested in writing about how change is led and implemented in universities.

My work was recognised in 2008 by the Higher Education Academy awarding me a National Teaching Fellowship, and as a result, I was eligible to bid for funding for my NTFS Project Assimilate http://assimilate.teams.leedsmet.ac.uk/ though which I have explored innovative assessment at Masters Level.

Currently I am Emerita Professor, at Leeds Metropolitan University, Adjunct Professor, at the University of Sunshine Coast, and James Cook University, (both in Queensland, Australia) and Visiting Professor, at Edge Hill University, the University of South Wales, and the University of Plymouth, who also awarded me an Honorary Doctorate in Education in 2012.
Until July 2010 I was Pro Vice Chancellor (Academic) at Leeds metropolitan University. I am a ‘Principal Fellow’ of the Higher Academy and hold a SEDA Senior Fellowship.

Home is Newcastle upon Tyne, where I live with my husband, fellow independent consultant, Phil Race very close to our lovely granddaughter Poppy and grandson Lucas who brighten up our lives.
