May 14th, 2024

Professor Mark Bradley will be taking up the role of Interim Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education and Student Experience, effective from 1 August 2024. 

Since first being appointed to the role of Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Teaching and Curriculum Leadership in August 2020, Professor Bradley has led on a number of initiatives and workstreams to improve student engagement and satisfaction as well as providing leadership and guidance to many university departments.  

Speaking about his appointment, Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West said:  

“Mark has been an invaluable colleague and has played an active part in the university’s drive to create the best experience for students across our campuses.  

He particularly champions the needs of Postgraduate Taught students and always ensures they have a voice and representation at the top level. 

 I look forward to working more closely with Mark in the coming months.” 

In addition to taking up the role as Interim Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education and Student Experience, Professor Bradley has also been re-appointed as Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor for Teaching and Curriculum Leadership for a further four-year period.   

Speaking about his re-appointment, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education and Student Experience, Professor Sarah Speight said: “Since his initial appointment in 2020, Mark has led on crucial pieces of work, including student engagement monitoring, improved processes for electronic exams, design guidelines for learning spaces, and digital accessibility.  

He has a clear set of priorities for his second term (including developing an education strategy around use of generative AI and partnering with the SU to improve ‘student voice’).  

I am delighted to confirm his renewal for a second term.” 

As part of his second term, Professor Bradleys priorities include enhancing the university’s PGT education and student experience; assessing and providing feedback for Curriculum Nottingham; effectively integrating artificial intelligence in teaching and learning; improving the university’s  Student Voice and examining academic ESE leadership role profiles. 

Professor Bradley said: “The past few years have brought unprecedented challenges for all of us, but I’ve been really impressed by the way staff and students alike have rallied together to keep the show on the road.  

Further challenges lie ahead – making safe, ethical and creative use of artificial intelligence technologies, for example, ensuring our students’ voices are heard and that students are at the heart of our planning and decision-making, and balancing financial efficiencies with investments in strategic enhancement.  

I look forward to supporting our terrific teams of academic and professional services colleagues across the university to weather the challenges ahead, but also to explore new opportunities to make sure the experience our students have bring out the very best in them.”
