Teaching

I encourage active learning through a discursive mode of pedagogy, and seek to enable students to become independent learners, giving them skills that will outlast their time with me. I have a postgraduate qualification in pedagogy (the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education), and have published in this field. My research practice informs both the content and methods of my teaching.
