Research summary

My research is in the area of chemical education and pedagogy, which involves designing or updating teaching methods, such as assessment, and critically evaluating the outcomes of that design or update. My particular focus is the postgraduate taught (PGT) student transition and experience, how these MSc and MRes students adapt to studying in what is often a new institution, city, country, and language of instruction. I am also interested in peer-to-peer learning and so-called peer assessment activities, student perceptions and the efficacy of such activities.
