I’m currently Lecturer in Theatre (0.5 FTE) in the Department of Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media at the University of York.
Since 2016, I’ve taught on various undergraduate courses at Royal Holloway, the University of Manchester and the University of York. Between October 2019 and January 2021 I held the position of Lecturer (maternity cover) in the Department of Drama at the University of Manchester, with additional supervision and pastoral roles alongside my teaching. I have also taught Masters workshops at both the University of Manchester and the University of York.
I have teaching experience across a wide range of subjects within the discipline and have taught on modules including ‘Theatre and Performance: Texts’, ‘Theatre and Performance: Concepts’, ‘Theatres of Modernity’, ‘Performance after Modernity’, ‘Post-Thatcher British Theatre’, ‘Dramaturgy’, ‘Theatre Criticism’, ‘Research Skills’ and ‘Current Trends’.
I have also taught guest lectures and seminars at the University of Roehampton, the University of Kent and the University of Gloucestershire.
I’m an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I completed Royal Holloway’s Programme in Skills of Teaching to Inspire Learning (inSTIL) in 2016 with a commendation for the high quality of my teaching portfolio.
My teaching has been consistently praised by colleagues who have observed my lessons. Peer observation reports have commended the ‘focused, supportive and intellectually stimulating’ atmosphere of my seminars and noted that I am ‘especially proficient in eliciting responses from the students’.
In module feedback, students have described my seminars as ‘very interactive and dynamic’ and have valued my ability to listen carefully and ask challenging follow-up questions during class discussion, as well as expressing appreciation for my feedback (both written and in-person) on assessed work. Students have also praised the design and interactivity of my online teaching materials.
