early 20s on a posting with Air India as cabin crew.She married a British citizen and completed her degree in Contemporary Studies whilst her three sons were relatively young, going on to gain certificates in adult education and careers guidance and finally an MA in Education.
Over the past nine years Arti has made key contributions to the University of Luton's innovative approach to integrating personal and professional development into the curriculum.In 1999 she
was seconded to the University of Reading
as a careers education manager where she
developed CMS (Career Management Skills) Online - 200 web pages of specially written interactive tutorial material - which launched an ambitious project to ensure that all undergraduates developed CMS as a part of their curriculum.Highly successful, the project has spread and embedded itself into every programme of study, under pinned by the success of CMS Online. Arti has since transferred the benefits of her secondment back to Luton where she is an extremely effective and well-respected teacher who has negotiated and led a number of curriculum development projects.She is a member of Institute of Learning & Teaching (now the Higher Education Academy) and was winner of the National Teaching Fellowship in 2005.She is currently a core member of the University of Luton's Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Learning team leading a major project on Assessment Centres.
