I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Media & Communications and the University of Sunderland, where I’ve teaching radio production for over 20 years

My current teaching commitment includes:

Introduction to Radio and Podcasting (Year 1)
Podcasting (Year 2)
Radio Broadcasting (Year 3)
Radio Projects (Year 3 Major project)
Major Radio Project (Masters)

I also contribute to teaching across all modules on our MA in Radio, Audio and Podcasting course, including content on podcasting and production for live radio

I’ve also been supporting modules across the school where tutors are using podcasting as an assessment tool

I am the programme leader for BA Media Production, a role which has required me to attend assessment boards, write annual reports and take the the programme through review cycles and structural changes. I am a trained quality panel member, have been a member of Academic Board and have worked on other cross Faculty panels.

I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and RCS Zetta Accredited User
