Brief career history
|Learning and Teaching||
As Faculty Director of Learning and Teaching (FDLT) for Science I am responsible for around 5,000 students in Science, including standards, quality assurance, quality enhancement and disciplinary issues. I also oversee curriculum development, teaching and assessment. I teach across several areas, including Science, Medicine, Dentistry and Science Communication.
As FDLT I have university-level responsibilities including: chair of the Quality and Scrutiny Su-Committee; member of Senate Budget Committee; chair of the Project Executive Group for the refurbishment of 38 Mappin Street (budget over £8 million), Faculty Link Tutor for the University of Sheffield International College, TEF Steering Group, and many others. I support Widening Participation and Outreach activities and encourage opportunities for students to gain employability skills and undertake placements in industry and business.
My aims are: to provide effective induction for students during their transition into university; to ensure effective and efficient assessment; to promote widening participation; enhance the employment prospects of our students and graduates by supporting placement opportunities and fostering better links with employers. Overall my role is to ensure the best student experience we can and maintain the quality and standards of our programmes.
