Projects per year
My research interests include curriculum integration of simulation-based education (SBE), cardio-respiratory physiotherapy education, patient safety, human factors and inter-professional SBE, video-reflexivity and video-ethnography.
I have received over £376,480/ AUD$737,900 for research and knowledge exchange activities. These projects included substantial development of academic enterprise across a broad range of enterprise activities, predominantly relating to enhancing teaching and learning activities within external Universities and Healthcare organisations in England and Australia. I have been invited to speak at 15 national and international conferences and invited to write several book chapters and peer reviewed manuscripts pertaining to learning and teaching.
I was awarded Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, in recognition of successful, strategic leadership to enhance student learning, with a focus on enhancing teaching quality in institutional, national and international settings, and championing institutional and external approaches to academic practice.
In 2017, I was appointed as 1 of 4 Senior Editors for a Major Reference Work featuring 121 chapters, on Clinical Education for the Health Professions: Theory and Practice.
