Teaching interests

I am the programme lead for the MSc Global Health. This has both a leadership and remote and rural pathway. 
I am co-module lead for our three core modules; Global Health, Remote and Rural healthcare and Leadership and Innovation in Practice. 
These modules are delivered using blended methods - lectures, seminar's, online and with field trips and outdoor simulation. I am involved in all and in charge of ensuring our online platform is of an excellent quality for supporting the students' learning and experience. We support and guide our students whilst in a practice setting overseas or in the UK to gain the most from their experiences and gain accreditation for their reflections and learning. 

I am personal tutor to all our students and have a strong track record of excellent communication, support and student feedback. 

I am a sustainability fellow for the University of Plymouth and have an interest in Authentic Learning for Global Citizenship. I co-lead an Advanced HE network with this title.
