Principal Lecturer (Academic Development)

I work with the Academic Development team to create and support initiatives for expanding on the excellent teaching at the University of Sunderland in London. 

We work closely with our lecturers and support staff to make sure you as students have an excellent experience during your time here and are set up for academic success.

I have over two decades of teaching experience, from primary-ages to graduate students.

Before joining the University, I was a tenured Associate Professor of Teaching and Learning in the United States. 

I created and taught courses through field work, traditional lectures, hybrid teaching, online learning and international study.
