Dr Tehmina Gladman
|Position||Lecturer - Education Advisor|
|Qualifications||BA (Psych) PGDip(Ed) MSc (Psych) PhD (Exp Psych)|
|Research summary||Research interests include academic motivation, self efficacy, and technology in learning.|
My doctoral work in social psychology led me to an interest in how and why students learn, in particular, what motivates students to learn in challenging environments. As such, I have begun a programme of research focusing on academic motivation in health profession education and how the learning environment influences students' academic performance. Aspects of the learning environment that I am particularly interested in include giving and receiving feedback, planning to teach, and using technology to enhance teaching and learning.
I am interested in working with postgraduate students with interests in student self-efficacy, self-determination theory, and more generally academic motivation or student engagement in learning. I would also be interested in working with students with an interest in how technology may be used to support teaching and learning.
I started in the field of Experimental Psychology and taught for many years, developing an interest in technology and staff development. Before becoming the Education Adviser, I had the role of eLearning Facilitator, working with staff to develop their use of elearning tools to enhance teaching and learning. I now work with staff on a range of educational matters including the planning, development, delivery, assessment, and evaluation of courses; professional development; research with an educational focus; and confirmation pathway processes.
