Dave Allan
Member

I have worked internationally for companies including Ford Motor Co, Nissan Motors, BTR/Invensys, Garratt/Honeywell and VW/Bentley Motors, and established and managed a design consultancy.  As a change agent and industrial trouble-shooter, I have contributed to the effectiveness of organisations across a variety of industries.

I focused the last 13 years on the implementation of change in the design and delivery of HE Engineering education, concentrating on the development of the capability of the graduate and the development of the practices which influence the learning process; particularly the motivation and engagement of students during learning, curricular design and the management of threshold concept learning, and Assessment QA.
