Our teams

KIITE is a cross-cutting Institute. We work across all learning communities and learning spaces at Keele University, shaping educational delivery and evaluation; with academics, with students and with external partners.

Curriculum Design and Development

Our teams of developers and learning technologists work together to shape educational delivery, design curricula and deliver enhanced education outcomes for both staff and students. We work in close partnership with the university’s three faculties, and our work is overseen by an international Curriculum Advisory Board and Keele’s Principal Fellow and National Teaching Fellow Network. Curriculum Design and Development is led by Dr Filippo Nereo.
