Research Interests and Techniques
I am Academic Director for the College of Medicine Biological Sciences & Psychology and my research interests lie in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.
Current areas of research are in: using video diaries to capture the student experience; developing an ethos of academic integrity; student engagement with feedback; developing the personal tutor system and the role of ‘belonging’ in student retention. I use a range of qualitative and quantitative techniques to explore these areas. I chair the Pedagogical Research Group in the School of Biological Sciences and also the HEA BioPedR group.
Research Group and Funding
The research into Learning and Teaching in Higher Education is currently funded by the Wellcome Trust, the Higher Education Academy and the University of Leicester and is being undertaken in collaboration with: Drs Alan Cann and Mark Goodwin and Craig Bartle, School of Biological Sciences, and Drs Bob Norman & Kerry Dobbins from the Dept of Medical & Social Care Education.
