RA6a: Additional observations, Evidence of esteem
Ross from the Science and Environmental Education group gave two papers at the Information Technology for Teacher Education conference, Amsterdam in 1998.
Staff are engaged in a wide range of activities that indicate the esteem in which they are held in professional and academic communities. For example, they are editorial board members of the following journals: British Journal of Sociology of Education (Fuller); Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, (Charlton), Health Education (Rolls), International Journal of Early Childhood (Catherwood) and New Therapist (Charlton). Catherwood, Collinson, Evans, Fuller, Hockey, Littledyke, and Terrell undertake reviewing for academic journals and proceedings of international conferences, act as publisher's readers and referee Research Council proposals. Staff have acted as external examiner for 10 PhDs: Catherwood (La Trobe, 2000); Charlton (de Los Andes, 1997); Fuller (Nottingham, 1996, 1998, Reading, 1997, 1999, Queensland University of Technology, 2000); Woodward (Leeds Metropolitan, 1999, University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, 2000, Lancaster, 2000).

In recognition of Catherwood’s contribution to its work, the Australasian Human Development Association created her a lifetime member in 1996. From 1997-2000 Fuller was an Executive member of the British Educational Research Association; Lakin chaired the Environmental Education Task Group of the Association for Science Education (1994-97); while Woodward was an Executive member (1997-99) and, from 2000, Chair of the Through the Glass Ceiling Network of Women in Higher Education Management. She has been an Executive member of the UK Council for Graduate Education since 1997.
During 1999 Terrell gave keynote addresses on dyslexia and dyspraxia to Zimbabwe Remedial Teachers’ Association and at Cape Town College, University of the Western Cape. In the same year Woodward made a British Council sponsored visit to the University of Marmara, Istanbul, with which the College has a formal academic link, making presentations to university staff and students and to senior HRM staff from a regional health services network.
