Personal profile

Personal Statement

What matters to me in my role and drives me forward to achieve excellence is my determination to lead and enhance student learning through my work with staff. I support learning and teaching staff to have confidence, to be bold and innovative in their approaches, to find their voice, and to realise their leadership potential.

I have used my role to lead and model the enhancement of learning and teaching across my institution and within the HE sector. I have effected change within my role by leading and directing a suite of Academic Development initiatives to support staff, and by working strategically as part of the central Learning and Teaching team, developing and implementing policies, strategies and initiatives to support student learning and the work of University staff.

My reach, and the distinctiveness of my impact, extends beyond my institution into the wider HE sector where I have shared my scholarship and practices at conferences and effected change in practice through the provision of toolkits and learning resources.

I am a Principal Fellow of the HEA.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the scholarship of learning and teaching. I take every opportunity to develop my scholarship profile at Strathclyde and in the wider HE sector, demonstrating an integrated approach to academic practice. Recent scholarship projects have included Peer Support Networks, Blended and Online Learning Design (BOLD), and celebrating learning and teaching practice through the pandemic.
