I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA). I am also a Professional Standards Advisor, supporting colleagues at Newcastle University who are applying for their own HEA fellowship.

Current university teaching:

  • Social Justice EDU3002, module for BA in Education (contributor to team taught module)
  • An Introduction To The Nature of Explanation and Enquiry HSS8007, module as part of faculty-level training for Humanities and Social Science PGR students (contributor to team taught module)
  • supervision and marking of university students’ work (undergraduate, Master’s, and PGCE)

From 2010-2015 I was a learning and teaching development officer at Newcastle University. My role included organising the learning and teaching seminar series, co-organising the annual learning and teaching conference, and coordinating the university-level teaching and learning funding scheme. I was also the quality enhancement representative for quality assurance processes of the accreditation of taught programmes, and participated in internal subject reviews of teaching and assessment.

In 2013 I was the deputy course leader for the advanced studies in academic practice course for international academic staff visiting Newcastle University.

In 2008 and 2009 I was an English language teacher at Southeast University in Nanjing, PR China. I led two modules each semester for undergraduate students majoring in English. I completed my CELTA (Postgraduate Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) in 2007, and worked as an English language teacher at private language schools in the UK and in China.

I regularly lead workshops and activities about comics.
