I have been running the PgC Teaching in Higher Education 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.
I am part of the Open Door network, and am happy to meet with others to support their development in:
- Internationalisation of the curriculum: i.e. developing the cultural capacity of our students. This has connections with EDGE, in particular the ethical and global aspects, as these are critical to the notion of the global citizen. I run workshops in this area, and also developed the reflective tool which enables you to consider the extent to which your curriculum is internationalised. This is here.
- Designing aligned assessment: I run workshops on assessment as part of the PgC THE including constructive alignment of assessment within the module, inclusivity of assessment tools, and exploring alternative assessment tools for particular purposes.
I also supervise one doctoral student, 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; and sustainability in the curriculum.
