I am the KAPS Director and as part of my role I oversee the provision of the KAPS programme - Kingston's AdvanceHE-accredited framework which recognises the professional practice of experienced colleagues at Kingston within the UK Professional Standards Framework. I am also contributing to the Introduction to Learning and Teaching (ILT) programme, as well as the CPD staff development programme at Kingston.
My research interests include academic staff development needs for blended and online learning; curriculum design; assessment and feedback; learning theories; web conferencing and the use of video in education.
