Academic Practice Development Advisor

As a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy I have been involved in UK higher education as an academic and academic developer since 2004, joining Loughborough’s Centre for Academic Practice in February 2014.

I am the Programme Director of the Associate Teaching Programme (ATP), and deliver modules on the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP). I am responsible for a series of teaching development workshops, mentor colleagues through Loughborough University’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Scheme, and have a particular interest in the areas of assessment, learning engagement and degree legacy.

Students setting summative assessments: inspirational, feasible learning engagement or a terrifying step too far?

My doctoral research focuses on the value added to an individual of higher education undergraduate experiences seen from the graduate perspective.

The research draws on how the Graduate Voice can be both evaluated and maximised across institutions to enhance prospective and current students’ intra and extra-curricular experiences. Research has led to workshops, posters and papers being delivered at RAISE 2012, 2013, 2014; SRHE Edinburgh 2013 and SEDA 2014.
