Teaching

2020. Ambroise Gregoire Baker – Fellowship – Advance HE (FHEA). As soon as I took up my first lectureship I became a student again, ironically, by undertaking a PGCert in Teaching and Learning in Higher Eduction, Teesside University, UK.

2020. Direct involvement in developing Teesside University’s MSc in Environmental Management launched in September 2020.

2019. LTE published a case study of teaching innovation about my development of a peer-assement workflow for a first year 120-student module. Follow this link to access on LTE’s blog.

2018-present: Module leader and module contributions t0

I receive positive feedback, from both the department and the students with special comments about how I make the topics interesting – ‘even’ bryophytes, algae and seaweed I am told!
