Festival of Learning

Categories News & Updates, PGR

I was delighted to be asked to be a Keynote speaker on the opening day of Teesside University’s 2016 Festival of Learning – a week long event exploring different aspects to teaching and learning. My talk was on the interplay between teaching and research, and I decided to use my group’s excellent work in both areas to highlight the benefits of using research as a hook for teaching.

Finished talking and ready for questions!

I’ll get the full text up online soon, but it was wonderful to get such positive feedback for the talk – but mainly for the innovative teaching that we do here. Basically, my students are very lucky..!

I'm a Professor of Applied Biological Anthropology at Teesside University.
