What is a University Teacher Fellow?

The role of the UTF has changed as the Bristol ChemLabS project has matured. It was first concerned with the planning and development of the Bristol ChemLabS teaching and learning experience in the new laboratories and was held by Dr Russell Cox, who was heavily involved in many aspects of the CETL Programme for its first four years, including the design of the new laboratories, discussions with architects and IT experts, the development of new laboratory experiments and assessment methods, and the introduction of the Dynamic Laboratory Manual (DLM).

In 2008 Gus led a successful bid for funding to develop eBioLabs, a Dynamic Laboratory Manual for the biosciences, and as part of his UTF role, will be actively involved in disseminating ChemLabS best practice into other academic disciplines in the bioscience area.
