Abstract or description

Prof Jess Power PhD MBA MA BSc (Hons) SFHEA NTF FTI CText
Associate Dean (Students) School of Creative Arts and Engineering
Contact details:

Professor of Teaching and Learning and Associate Dean Students at Staffordshire University. She is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Fellow of The Textile Institute, Fellow of Chartered Management Institute, and a National Teaching Fellow.

She has over 14 years teaching experience and has contributed extensively to the development of quality assurance, policy enhancement both internally and externally at national and international levels. She has led a variety of internally and externally funded research projects and has published widely with over 70 national/international publications, including keynote presentations.
Jess is particularly interested in contributing to shaping the future of Higher Education through design challenge-led learning integrating academic disciplines, creating learning networks and knowledge co-creation. Her innovative approach bridges disciplines and has resulted in best-practice models for integrating interdisciplinarity into teaching and learning (T&L) to develop enterprise and employability skills for higher education students which has led to innovative and valuable social assets. Her focus on interdisciplinarity has enabled her to transform the student experience by creating networks for individuals, who share the common goal of transferring knowledge beyond the boundaries of their own disciplines, whilst developing employability and enterprising skills.

Her expertise and specialist knowledge span’s both fashion and textiles and cross into other disciplines (health, engineering, education and business). This is evidenced through her sustained publication portfolio which demonstrates high quality research with impact for the commercial sector and wider HE sector.

Areas of expertise include:
• T&L – interdisciplinary co-creation,
• Enterprise,
• Product Innovation,
• Fashion/Apparel,
• Textiles and Material Manufacturing.

Her recent projects have formed a blueprint for innovation in HE T&L and have been widely disseminated through a series of high-profile case studies and have been nationally and internationally recognised as good practice. They feature in The ECT (Enhancing the Curriculum Toolkit: University of South Wales), in Enhancing Employability through Enterprise Education: Examples of Good Practice in HE, (HEA, 2014) and more recently in The Experiential Entrepreneurship Exercises Journal.
