Adviser (HE and HE in FE)
Evan holds a BA Hons in Art History (East Anglia), an MA in Arts Criticism (City, London) as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Online Learning and Training (Institute of Education, London) and PRINCE2 Practitioner status. He has worked in the higher education sector for fifteen years, occupying a variety of roles from lecturer and academic support staff to his current role as a strategic adviser for RSC London. This range of experience, gained from the public and privately funded university areas, gives him a particularly broad-based understanding of the complex issues facing higher education currently, which reflects his work with RSC Londonís fifteen supported HEIs and FE colleges with HE provision. Keen to expand his involvement across the post-16 sectors, Evan has also worked to support Adult and Community Learning, Further Education and Specialist colleges in London.
During his time working for RSC London, Evan has taken a lead in developing the regional and national remit for RSCs on agendas such as Sustainability and Business and Community Engagement (BCE), serving on cross-regional working groups. Evan is also currently the national co-ordinator of the HE Advisers across the RSC regions.
Evan has presented papers on e-learning at a number of international conferences including ALT-C, CHArt (Computing and the History of Art), Museums and the Web USA and Designs on e-learning in London. In April 2010 he presented a keynote address at the national Capita FHE conference focussing on HE in FE strategy development following HEFCE requirements and in February 2011 presented a keynote to a conference on HE/FE Collaborations on the way forward for HE provision at FE colleges. In June 2011, Evan co-lead a conference workshop on institutional mergers. To support FOTE 2011, the Future of Technology in Education conference, Evan is facilitating an online debate centred on the future of Traditional and Open Educational pedagogies.
