Dr. Julie Hulme is a UK National Teaching Fellow and applied psychologist from Keele University, with a particular interest in applying psychological theories and research to enhancing teaching and learning. During this lunch lecture, dr Hulme will focus on the importance of developing teaching to support student engagement, independent learning, and employability, and will draw on her recent work reflecting on the ways in which scholarship can facilitate this. She will also share some practical examples of how to use scholarship to inform teaching practice, and encourage us to reflect on ways in which we can adopt similar approaches. Hulme will suggest that educational scholarship is an aid in bridging the gap between educational research and learning and teaching in higher education, drawing on her experiences around interactive and student-centred learning, authentic assessment, and more. Why are these issues important, and how can we make them work?
