Teaching Profile

I am passionate about enhancing the postgraduate research experience. Integrated and networked research communities are core to this, and I enjoy working with postgraduate students and representatives, alumni, academic and support departments and organisations to develop provision.   

I lead on the Professional Progression Programme, Postgraduate Representative Training and Supervisor CPD. For the latter I run departmental student focus groups and senior leadership meetings to shape the content of the supervisor training workshops. I am a qualified coach on the doctoral student Coaching Programme, and I am Myers Briggs (MBTI┬«) and Belbin┬« accredited and a Mental Health First Aider.

Developing researchers who can work effectively in changing environments is core to my research and presentations on doctoral well-being and doctoral alumni views. The courses I lead and teach on are geared to developing communication, connections and progression and so include some reference to self-awareness and understanding of others (provision listed below).
