As a staff tutor I am responsible for the management of a number of Associate Lecturers (ALs) who tutor modules in the health sciences curriculum.
I have teaching responsibility in the health sciences and natural sciences curriculum, including working on modules in presentation and in production. I am currently chairing the production of an introductory level, 60 credit module, Questions in science. (S111). S111 is entirely online and covers introductory level biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy and Earth and environmental science in 11 Topics all with a question as the title, the first being Can you make a hole in water? The module will be presented twice a year and starts in October 2016 with around 1200 students and 60 ALs.
I have an interest in change management projects and am also currently the sub project lead for 'learning design and content' in the Group Tuition implementation project. This project is university wide and involves faculty and academic services staff and is changing the way tuition is delivered in all modules (over 600) across the university.
Pedagogic research interests in communication methods with students.
