Antony Johnston, Curriculum Development Coordinator for CLTAD (centre for learning teaching and development)
Prior to his role within CLTAD, Antony was a Principal Lecturer at the London College of Communication. In his current role, Antony is working to implement programmes and initiatives throughout curriculum and research at UAL to promote sustainability.
Antony’s role is to oversee and achieve success in these areas through promoting diversity of approach towards sustainability and building on current research and practice. These are key areas of direction for the future and sustainability is featured considerably within the mid term strategy at UAL . An important part of Antony’s role is to manage the Curriculum Development Funding. By providing grant funding and links between projects throughout the university, it is hoped the level of engagement with sustainability throughout the university will increase.
As Curriculum Development Co-ordinator, Antony is working with CLTAD to develop the Green Kite mark scheme. The criteria for the Green Kite mark aims to provide recognition of sustainable practice within the curriculum and academic work throughout UAL. It is an accreditation scheme that recognises sustainable success and rewards students and staff for pursuing sustainability related projects. The Green Kite accreditation will facilitate varying levels of engagement in sustainability and provide opportunities for ongoing research. The Green Kite mark will be available to all initiatives working to make a difference around UAL. Whether in the form of paperless assessment, increasing recycling and reuse facilities, providing materials information or technological developments, the aim of the kite mark scheme is a continual process of assessment and accreditation to reward such projects and communicate them to the wider staff and student body at UAL.
