Prof. Dudley Shallcross was awarded the first National Teaching Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy in Chemistry in the UK in 2004 and has subsequently won several national and international awards for his research in science (atmospheric chemistry) and contributions to Science Education and Science engagement at primary, secondary and tertiary levels. In education he has worked on enabling effective transition from secondary to tertiary education in science, effective transition from primary to secondary in science, effective Outreach by HEIs to secondary and primary schools and teaching mathematics in context at all levels.
He was Director of Outreach for Bristol ChemLabS* from 2005-2010, where he developed a number of innovative programs linking tertiary science education with secondary and primary school partners, as well as the general public. He became Director of the Trust in March 2010 and during the past five years he has overseen the development of a new strategy for the Trust where excellent teachers are at the centre. Dudley has established the Trust’s College of Excellent Primary Science Teachers that aims to draw together the best Primary Science practitioners in the UK. Together with the support of Trust partners his hope is that the College will play a significant role in shaping UK primary science for the better now and for many years to come.
