Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) has appointed National Teaching Fellow Dr Alex Moseley as the new Head of Anglia Learning and Teaching (AL&T).

Before joining AL&T this month, Alex was Head of Curriculum Enhancement at the University of Leicester. There he led the institution through curriculum transformation, reviewing digital learning support and designing a flexible, blended approach to learning and teaching under COVID. 

Alex is the founding co-chair of the Playful Learning Association and co-chair of the Playful Learning Conference. He is also a Visiting Fellow at Denmark’s Centre for Higher Education Futures at Aarhus University, and an external examiner at Durham University. Alex has an MA in Online and Distance Education and his PhD from the University of Leicester focused on playful learning. He is an accredited Lego Serious Play Facilitator, an accredited Co-Navigator Facilitator and is widely published. 

Alex said: “I am delighted to take on my new role at ARU. This will provide an opportunity to consider flexible future HE provision and alongside the talented team at AL&T to push active and research-led learning and teaching, authentic assessment, and flexible digital and blended learning.” 

This key post is based in AL&T, the team within Learning Development Services responsible for driving and implementing significant change in ARU’s approach to learning, teaching and assessment.  

Alex will play a vital part in ARU’s ambitious programme to transform students’ learning through the implementation of the new active curriculum framework that stands at the heart of the Education Strategy.
