Programme Director and Principal Lecturer
Room number: T0.08a
Extension number: 5739
I have been running the PgC since its inception in 2005 and so have seen a considerable number of our new academic staff gain confidence in teaching, and gain a good grounding in pedagogy which gets them started in an academic career.
I also work with more experienced staff running workshops and advising on specific aspects of curriculum review, in particular assessment, internationalisation of the curriculum, and sustainability in the curriculum.
I oversee teaching-research integration projects. These have included internationalisation of the curriculum; gender and sexuality in the curriculum; sustainability and its implications for curricula; and the experiences of students coming from Welsh medium school education into Cardiff Met into either Welsh or English medium courses.
Currently I am engaged in several projects:
- Developing more meaningful resources for link tutors to use with their collaborative partner staff
- Expanding the staff peer learning and development scheme to include Open Door access to staff with particular expertise in the university
- Developing better promotion criteria for Reader and Professor through the learning and teaching route.
I also supervise two doctoral students, and am a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I sit on several panels and committees across the university.
My research interests include student-centred pedagogies; internationalisation of the curriculum; sustainability in the curriculum.
I am a member of the Open Door network. Please click on the logo to see my areas of expertise.
