Dr Ioannis Anagnostopoulos


I am currently a senior lecturer in the Business School, and the Post Graduate course director in our suit of Accounting and Finance  programmes. I work closely with colleagues, students as well as a range of external stakeholders, such as professional bodies, in order to achieve high quality degree content as well as the best recognition possible for our degrees and our students. 

I have formerly worked at the University of Aberdeen and University of East London. Prior to joining the HE Academy, I held managerial roles in both the public and private sectors where I worked both for governmental and non-governmental Institutions in roles that entailed financial forecasting and preparation of budgets.

My research interests revolve around - but not limited - to the financial services' research domain: financial regulation, corporate governance, M&As, forecasting and valuation. I am also interested in pedagogic research that aims to maximize the effectiveness of teaching for the benefit of our students in terms of achieving their educational and career-related goals and aspirations.

Teaching and learning

I am driven by the aspiration to increase teaching effectiveness by focusing on the design of individual lessons and lesson planning. To achieve that I give serious consideration to the student voice by being inclusive and take the diverse needs of a range of learners, as well as student equity, into account. This is also achieved by building on students' prior learning and experiences and by trying to engage students in clear thinking about longer term learning outcomes as well as short-term goals. I involve a range of teaching techniques in the delivery of a lesson, ranging from whole-class and structured group work through seminars and workshops to guided learning and individual activity where throughout I also aim to maintain good use of dialogue and questioning in order to do so. I am a strong believer of the principle of student-instructor relationship building where students are fully immersed and invested in their studies and instructors dedicated to towards the realization of student long-term aspirations through effective knowledge building.
