How can I help learning developers?
I am interested in collaborating with colleagues from other universities to develop research projects that explore students’ learning experiences. I am on the Ethics Panel at Buckinghamshire New University and I am also involved in a study that explores the impact of group work on the self-efficacy of Foundation Year students at Bucks New University. Thus, I could guide academics in applying for ethical approval for their research. I have successfully mentored several colleagues in applying for AdvanceHE fellowship, so I am happy to support anyone who is interested in applying for professional recognition.
