  • Lecturer (Teaching) MA Education
  • IOE - Curriculum, Pedagogy & Assessment
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am a lecturer and module leader on the MA Education programme where I have also worked as an admissions tutor for three years. From April 2020-December 2021, I was the Connected Learning Lead within the Department of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment at UCL IOE supporting the move to remote and online teaching and learning through communication, training and readiness checking. I have also worked as a teaching fellow within three modules on the MA Education and International Development programme and as a module leader on the MA Global Learning, and as module leader and/or seminar tutor within three modules on the BA Education Studies programme at IOE. I have facilitated 25 post graduate research students at the Centre for Doctoral Education and taught seminars on Education and Conflict for MA EID students and on Critical Realism for PhD students at IOE.

From December 2017 till January 2019, I have worked as a consultant for a British Council funded schools project in Algeria, conducting research in 14 schools across 6 Governorates (Wilayas) and writing part of the Phase 2 baseline report.

I have moved to Higher Education having worked in teaching and journalism. I was a secondary Science and Biology teacher and Head of Health and Social Care for 16 years in schools across London, a secondary governor and Chair of Governors and  a member of the Brent Schools Forum. I have worked as a print and broadcast journalist for 10 years, including 8 years for BBC World TV as a news journalist. I also worked as a consultant and media trainer in the UK and the Middle East and a consultant for a DFID/IOM Conflict Resolution and Peace building project for Women in Somaliland. Following this, I edited and contributed to a project report published by IOM in 2002.
