Research

My research concentrates on teaching and learning in higher education; specifically, how students' learning experiences and outcomes can be enhanced. I research students' experiences in higher education, in order to gain insights into how policy and practices might be structured to encourage students' retention and success. Other research involves examining how we can improve teaching practices in higher education. Current projects include: students’ understandings of plagiarism; effective feedback processes in the clinical dental education environment; dental students' stress and wellbeing.
