Associate Head of School, Faculty of Creative Industries, University of South Wales

Jonathan Baldwin is the Associate Head of School in the Faculty of Creative Industries at the University of South Wales. Prior to taking up this post he was the Director of Teaching and Learning in the Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge. He has particular interests in interdisciplinarity in research and teaching, and in internationalisation of the curriculum.

Jonathan studied for a BA and MA with the Open University while working as a graphic designer and marketer for a FTSE100 company in his native North Yorkshire. He later moved in to education and has worked at the University of Brighton, the Higher Education Academy, and most recently the University of Dundee where he taught across several design disciplines with a focus on visual and cultural studies, advertising and branding, service and strategic design, and Chinese culture and history.

Jonathan received several awards at Dundee for innovation and excellence in teaching. He is frequently invited to participate in validation events and act as an external examiner.

A big believer in understanding the student experience, Jonathan often studies courses himself, most recently in subjects as diverse as statistics, Chinese, and object-oriented programming.
