I was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship (NTF) in 2018 to recognise my commitment to educational development. I am still absolutely overwhelmed and delighted to have achieved this prestigious national award and to represent Edge Hill University as part of a highly regarded national group of colleagues who are making an outstanding impact on higher education. I also secured Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (PFHEA D4) in 2015 to recognise my longstanding professional interest and investment in linking scholarship with continuing professional development. I continue to lead on university-wide forums and working groups to transform and enhance student learning in a positive way, in particular around inclusive practices and student peer mentoring. These have resulted in a University Student Peer Mentoring Policy and an award-winning approach to Inclusion and Diversity. I also lead a university-wide, collaborative learning and teaching fellowship programme that promotes and maintains a high quality and transformative student experience. I continue to present and disseminate my ideas nationally and internationally.
