I am the department adviser to Economics, International Development, Management, Finance and the School of Public Policy and work closely with them to enhance and evolve their teaching and learning programmes and practice. I lead the Atlas programme for the Eden Centre, which is a year-round series of academic development workshops and events for staff at the school. I also teach on the PGCert and other professional development programmes run by the Eden Centre.
I am interested in understanding and adopting a critical, multi-perspectival approach to higher education, and am the editor of two blogs – the LSE Higher Education Blog and the Contemporary Issues in Teaching and Learning blog. Having lived, studied, and taught in different education systems and countries, I am passionate about fostering all forms of diversity (ideological, cultural, etc.) in HE. Past research I have been involved in has focussed on journal clubs, online education, developing conceptual understanding, and most recently, on the nature and perception of silence in the classroom.
