Academic and research interests

My main research interests are regarding learning, teaching and assessment in Higher Education. In particular, how alternative assessment methods to written essays can help students demonstrate key life and employability skills, such as authentic assessment. I also have a keen interest in how students use their feedback and the use of peer feedback in supporting and devloping individual student understanding and knowledge in the subject matter.

I am also very interested in research regarding the increasing numbers of widening participation students entering HEI's and how LTA practices need to be evaluated in order to effectively nurture these students through their time as undergrad students.

Alongside a colleague, we have ongoing research projects regarding assessment feedback, and also student support and progression from the Integrated Foundation Year programme.
