Responsibilities/biography

Tracy’s role is to help students of all ability further develop their academic skills and literacies so they can reach their full potential at University. This primarily involves close and regular collaboration with academics, particularly at the College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology, and LLI colleagues to ensure that support is fully integrated into mainstream learning and teaching practices.

She also enjoys supporting students through centralised workshops and individual study consultations.

Tracy has previously taught at Loughborough University and worked at the University of Warwick in a number of different roles. Most recently, she was focused on embedding information literacies within the curriculum through the Library.
