David Spendlove


Having had a successful career in secondary education (for 13 years) in a wide range of schools, prior to entering Higher Education I was a Gatsby Fellow, head of department and a member of senior management with responsibility for whole school issues including monitoring, assessment and recording. Since moving into Higher Education in 2000 my work has involved policy, practice and publications in a variety of areas including Teacher Education, Technology Education and Creative and Design Education. Currently I am a member of two editorial boards (including co-editing D&TE:IJ) and in 2013 I received an 'Outstanding Contribution award' from the D&TA for my work related to Teacher Education.
