In addition to the modules listed below, I have taught three first year modules for History at the Penryn Campus: People's History I: Everyday Life, People's History II: Politics, Place and Identity; Global History.

I have also taught module-specific Academic Skills Workshops, and I am on the supervisory teams as mentor for two postgraduate MRes students.

I aim to incorporate inclusivity and empathetic understanding into my teaching, and use a student-centred, enquiry based learning approach. My teaching practice has been recommended through peer observation for wider dissemination, and I have been nominated by students in the Student Guild's Teaching Awards every year I have taught, across both English and History, from 2011-present, including for 'Most Supportive Member of Staff' and 'Most Innovative Teaching'. 

For the Awards 2017 I was extremely honoured to have been nominated in 6 categories ('Most Supportive Member of Staff'; 'Best Undergraduate Supervisor'; 'Best Lecturer' 'Innovative Teaching'; 'Best Feedback Provider'; 'Best Postgraduate Research Supervisor'), and thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Awards ceremony as 'Best Feedback Provider'.
