"The DIAL project was an immensely ambitious 2 year JISC funded project that was led by Chris Follows.  Chris approached the work of the project with extreme dedication, enthusiasm and passion for the subject area and the unique approach that DIAL adopted in supporting staff digital literacy development.  Chris not only exceeded the overall objectives of the project and produced a report and set of resources that brought accolades from the funders, but he also disseminated the work more broadly, speaking at national and international events about DIAL. Chris, over the past 2 years, has grown to be recognised as a national expert, often being invited to participate or speak at high profile events.  The DIAL project has also most importantly had a significant impact on UAL staff and students with ample evidence of its success is enabling communities to develop digital skills to meet their specific needs.

In addition to his outstanding work on the DIAL project Chris has worked extensively outside of his formal roles to develop and grow a community around a social media platform called processarts, designed to enable sharing of practice in the arts.  The platform has been an essential component of the success of the DIAL project and other JISC funded projects like ALTO, acting as a key focal point for sharing resources and building virtual community around particular areas of practice.  Processarts has recently been adopted by UAL as an institutional tool which is a further testament to the usefulness of the tool and the benefits it has brought the art and design community."
