Our Network > Professor Robin Middlehurst

Robin Middlehurst is Professor of Higher Education at Kingston University and Director of Strategy, Research and International at the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LF-HE). She is also co-Programme Director of the Top Management Programme (TMP) for Higher Education offered by the LFHE.

In her past career Robin was Director of the Quality Enhancement Group at the Higher Education Quality Council (HEQC) (subsequently, the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education). While at the HEQC, Robin and her colleagues were responsible for designing and carrying out the Graduate Standards Programme, a major research and development programme into academic standards in the UK.

Robin's academic career has also included appointments at the University of Surrey where she initiated research into academic leadership and its development, and at the Institute of Education where she was also involved in research on quality in higher education. She has taught largely at postgraduate level on many aspects of higher education and is a frequent contributor to local, regional and international courses and conferences on HE. Her experience of leadership and management development has involved working with a wide range of Institutions, primarily in the areas of leadership and the impact of e-learning on the management of higher education.

Prior to entering higher education, Robin had taught at all levels of education, from primary to adult and had worked as a hospital social worker and youth and community worker. Robin is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of the Society for Research in Higher Education and a founding Fellow of the new Institute for Continuing Professional Development.
