National Teaching Fellows’ Interview Series: Kevin Orr

This short interview was conducted with Dr Kevin Orr, a National Teaching Fellow, at the University of Huddersfield’s Teaching & Learning Festival 2015.

Kevin talks about an inspirational teaching influence in this video. A teacher who taught him when he was 16 and who was able to make his subject ‘sing’.

“He made me realise how a topic or subject can be interesting. You don’t have to necessarily do interesting or lively things in class if you can get people interested in what you are talking about.”

He also talks about how the National teaching Fellowship award has helped him connect with a large community of practitioners abroad.
