Professor Ros Sutherland


I was very sad to hear the news that Professor Ros Sutherland had passed away. She was a significant scholar and an influential head of the School of Education. Ros was a key inspiration for me when I worked at Bristol University in the late nineties. I have Ros to thank for getting me into socio-cultural perspectives and in particular activity theory. Ros was a very vibrant and bubbly person, with a passion for both her teaching and research. I had the pleasure of developing a master programme with her, which was jointly run by the School of Education and my department, the Institute for Learning and Research Technology. A brief tribute to her is available from the School of Education website. SS Britain also wrote a tribute to her. She will be sadly missed but her contribution to education will not be forgotten
