Lecturer in Radiography with many years experience in clinical service provision and management in the UK and the Middle East.   Career-long involvement in education, both in the workplace and in the academic environment.   Particular clinical interests include radiation safety, orthopaedic and paediatric general imaging.  I also have experience in specialist imaging modalities including Computed Tomography and Radionuclide Imaging in both adult and paediatric practice.  

A lecturer since 2004, I have a particular interest in undergraduate, student-centered education and have worked collaboratively to develop E-learning within the subject area of radiography at Queen Margaret University. Modules have been developed to ensure student-centeredness and utilise varied forms of learning activities, formative and summative assessment and feedback mechanisms.

Part of the development team for MSc Diagnostic Radiography (pre-reg) and MSc Medical Imaging programmes, I have also participated in programme validation and review events in QMU.

I am the radiation protection supervisor for QMU and work closely with the Health and Safety Officer with regard to risk assessment and dose monitoring.

Affiliations/Memberships to Other Organisations:

  • Member of Society of Radiographers; HCPC Registered Radiographer

I have collaborated in researching educational issues such as the use of ePortfolios and feedback to students in achieving professional competence in clinical practice, encouraging reflective practice and ensuring student-centered methods of learning and assessment.   I am particularly interested in the perceptions of students of the value of feedback, in both academic and clinical education.
