Teaching gives me immense satisfaction, and I endeavour to undertake it with enthusiasm and a commitment to adaptability. I have had the privilege to teach across a range of areas in philosophy, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, as listed below.
My courses are research-led, enabling innovation and student engagement; they have recently included the upper undergraduate ‘philosophy of time travel’, an ancient philosophy-rich epistemology course, and an intersectional feminist philosophy course including the philosophy of race and disability. I’ve also had the pleasure of supervising several dissertations, at undergraduate and Masters level.
I take pastoral care seriously, and maintain an open-door policy for students. In my current position I serve as Year 2 & 3 Tutor (Convenor), as a representative on the Staff-Student and Marketing & Recruitment panels, and as Extenuating Circumstances Officer for Years 2 & 3 and PGT. Previously I have been involved in Open Days and other recruitment events, including engagement talks with high school students, which I have thoroughly enjoyed.
My teaching receives consistently high praise from students. I was recently nominated for a Cardiff University Enriching Student Life Award, for Most Uplifting Staff Member, to my great delight.
