Learning & Teaching

 

I am an active teacher in various areas of politics and EU studies and was awarded the PSA's Sir Bernard Crick Award for Outstanding Teaching in 2012. I also became a HEA National Teaching Fellow in 2015.

 

I also publish on the use of simulation games in higher education. This includes not only academic publications (see CV), but also regular posts for the Active Learning in Political Science blog. In addition, I have created materials for using simulations, hosted on the Higher Education Academy's website and on my own web resource.

 

I was a co-investigator on INOTLES "Innovating Teaching and Learning of European Studies", a TEMPUS-funded project (2014-2016), working with partners in five other European countries.

Between 2013 and 2015, I was Associate Dean, Learning & Teaching for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Surrey, I made me responsible for over 200 undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, and built on my extensive experience as a director of learning & teaching and a programme director within in the School of Politics.
