    The three research projects below were funded by BSLE (Brookes Student Learning Experience)

    1. Global Perspectives: Student Voices 2007-08 This project aimed to: understand Brookes students’ perceptions of internationalising the curriculum (IoC); obtain an insight into students’ experiences at Brookes in relation to IoC; obtain students’ views and suggestions on strategies they would like implemented at Brookes to facilitate IoC; provide quality information to Brookes on student expectations of IoC for future planning.
    2. Educated outside the UK – Educating the UK. 2008-2009 This project aims to understand more precisely the specific challenges for the student whose educational experience is from outside the UK and to frame the outcomes so university teachers are better able to appreciate and support the process of negotiation into a different educational culture.
    3. Fostering interculturality and global perspectives at Brookes through dialogue with staff 2008-2009. This project proposes to facilitate dialogue between international staff, staff with international educational experience and local staff with a view to learning from each other and exploring how curricula and pedagogy at Brookes could be enhanced by this intercultural knowledge and experience.

    Other experience

    In addition to my work at Brookes, I am External Examiner in Language and Communication at Edinburgh Napier University. I have been a fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2008. I referee articles for Language and Intercultural Communication
    After completing a BA in English Literature and History, I moved to Paris where I lived for 15 years. Whilst there, I worked for the  French Department of Education. On my return to England eleven years ago, I studied for an MA in Intercultural Communication under Professor Helen Spencer-Oatey. In 2009 I enrolled as a research student at the Institute of Education, London. My research is into the mental labour of globalisation carried out by UK academics in their everyday professional practices.
