Nicola Beer

  • Nicola Beer joined Brookes in January 2022 as Principal Lecturer, Head of Digital Inclusive Curriculum Enhancement. 

    Her background in Higher Education includes librarianship, learning design, intercultural engagement, and inclusive curriculum, with a focus on online and digital learning experiences. She is particularly interested in Sense of Belonging at university and how education shapes individuals’ perceptions of their own identity. 

    She is currently completing her PhD in Technology Enhanced Learning at Lancaster University and conducting research in the UK, Japan and Scandinavia on the impact of Virtual Exchange experiences outside formal education through a Churchill Fellowship. She is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Certified Member of the Association for Learning Technology. 

    Beyond Brookes, Nicola champions inclusion through volunteer roles as a school governor and as trustee of Warwickshire Pride. Outside of work she is a voracious reader and living proof that you cannot out-exercise a bad diet, being a regular Standup Paddle Boarder, Cross-fitter and indoor rower, but also a fan of delicious food.
