Personal profile

Scholarly biography

I joined the Centre for Learning and Teaching at the University as a Research Officer in 2008 and became a Research Fellow in 2013. My role mainly involves leading and conducting research into the experiences and percpetions of students and staff in HE relating to different aspects of learning, teaching and assessment. This work helps to contribute knowledge in the field of HE pedagogic research; disseminate good practice; and enhance the student experience at the university and across the sector.  I also teach research methods on the PG Cert in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and am a member of the CLT research ethics panel. Previously, I was a teacher of modern languages in secondary education. My qualifications include an MA in Marketing and an MA in Language, the Arts and Education. I am currently studying for a PhD exploring the influences of academic, professional and personal relationships and life events on part-time PhD students' learning journeys in UK universities in changing times.

As a researcher in the CLT, my work has often focused on the experiences of first year and international students in relation to student engagement, retention and success. I am a member of the research team on the HEFCE funded Changing Mindsets project and in 2017/18 led a qualitative study focusing on the influences of Changing Mindsets on students' and staff experiences of learning, teaching and success at the UoB.  I have acquired external funding for the following research projects, including: UKCISA to conduct research exploring the influences of the international foundation year on first year international undergraduates' experiences in UK universities; HEDG to conduct research into Educational Development in the United Kingdom; the HEA to produce a research synthesis relating to on-line support for academic writing in HE; and BAICE to convene a syposium to facilitate local cross-sector networking and discusssion among international doctoral students and supervisors.
