Research Output per year
My experience as a mature student gave me a deep interest in teaching and learning and this fascination grew as I engaged with students of vastly different abilities in my teaching. My PhD research began from the observation that students often graduated with the same idiosyncrasies in their writing that they started with. It has evolved into an exploration of the tensions and complexity surrounding the development of student writing in a higher education system which is struggling to move from the position of an elitist filter for high flyers to one which offers the opportunity for the realisation of potential to a much wider student body.
