Summary

 

Overview

Performative aspects of teaching

Richard is currently preparing a book manuscript on performative aspects of teaching in higher education, drawing on techniques from the performing arts to increase university teachers' confidence (Routledge, 2020).

Introduction to university teaching

Richard is also working on a textbook manuscript titled Introduction to University Teaching (with Mary Seabrook, King’s College London). The book is aimed at new teachers in higher education and supports progress towards AdvanceHE/HEA Fellowship, particularly AFHEA (Sage, 2021).

Other research areas

Richard has previously published on corpus-based approaches and drama pedagogy in interpreter education, and the role of students as teaching assistants in the language classroom. His ongoing research interests include academic practice development in GTAs and early career academics, learning and teaching strategies in multilingual and multicultural classrooms, inclusivity in learning and teaching, and students as partners in the learning process.
