Award: CeLP (2020)


I am an academic skills advisor with over 10 years’ experience working in learning development in Higher Education, both in the US and in the UK. I am an Academic Skills Adviser at Brunel University, where I have worked since 2015. I specialise in academic writing and critical thinking, and am particularly interested in the transition to the dissertation for both UG and PGT students.

How can I support Learning Developers?

I am the new co-chair of the ALDinHE Conference Working Group and, as such, am very active in organising and running the conference. I am also a member of the ALDinHE Steering Group. As such, I have a number of contacts across the LD community in the UK.
