Tell prospective students a bit about the work you do.
In my role at Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL), I support the development of academics in their educational practice, and develop tools and resources that respond to the needs and strategic aims of the university. I spend a lot of my time facilitating training and learning activities for staff, and collaborate with colleagues in departments and faculties across the university to identify best practices and support academics in their development as educators.

Tell prospective students a bit about how your studies at York helped you to get where you are today.

When I started the MPPAL program, I had spent several years developing and delivering educational programming, but was keen to learn how I could effect change on a broader, more strategic level. My interest in justice and citizenship made the “L” in MPPAL an important factor in choosing York over other policy degrees, but what has had the most impact on my work was the time spent on evaluation theory and practice. I really appreciated that everyone in my cohort was able to focus their writing and research on the topics that were most relevant to them and having the opportunity to learn more about their work made it an especially rich experience.
