I have been teaching in Higher Education for all of my career, initially as a research assistant In the School of Languages and European Studies at Wolverhampton University. I moved to the then St Martin’s College to teach Economics on the Business Degrees. More recently I moved to Academic Development within AQD where I am the Programme Leader for the PgCert Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and the University Lead on Assessment. I am also an FHEA, SFHEA assessor and mentor for our CPD route.
My research interests and publications are focused upon Assessment, Mature Students, Imposter Syndrome and Academic Identity. I am a member of the Executive Committee for Assessment in Higher Education which runs annual conferences and is at the cutting edge of Assessment and Feedback research. In addition, I am a reviewer for the Practitioner Research in Higher Education journal and the Journal of Further and Higher Education.
I currently have one PhD student in the field of Teaching and Learning in the Allied Health professions.
My external work includes being an External Examiner at University of Wolverhampton, University of Bolton and currently Maynooth University in Ireland.
