Teaching and supervision
I have had responsibility for designing and delivering a range of CPD modules related to SpLD (specific learning disabilities) which have been delivered on campus, via independent distant learning, and as bespoke provision to schools in the North East.
Most recently, I have been involved in delivering CPD to visiting academics from Iraq.
