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. I moved to academic development and am currently a Senior Academic Developer within CAPE where I am the Programme Leader for the PgCert Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and the Scheme Lead for the UKPSF Professional Route to Fellowship.
I am also the University Lead on Assessment, taking a key role within the LTA Assessment Group.
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. I am Deputy Director for the Higher Education theme in the LED reserach centre (Learning, Education and Development). 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.
