My primary focus is on teaching in quantitative disciplines, supporting teachers and developers of quantitative courses across the School through workshops and individual consultations.
I am also responsible for the Teaching and Learning Centre's new GTA induction programme, as well as various workshops on our PGCertHE and Academic Development programmes.
I have a long association with the School, having first started as an undergraduate here before becoming a teacher and educational researcher.
Experiencing the School from both sides of the 'podium' gives me an intimate understanding of the teaching we do here, but I still find myself surprised and inspired through this job.
My continuing teaching of mathematical subjects, both on campus-based as well as distance-based courses, fuels and informs my educational research interests; specifically, active learning approaches in quantitative disciplines and the use of web-based technologies to support learning in such disciplines.
I have recently started to look into the gamification and course design which lies atop the intersection of these seemingly diverse research interests.
