Tutor & Session Co-ordinator
Katy has 10 years experience as an A Level teacher and currently works as an undergraduate lecturer. She specialises in English, Film Studies and Media and Cultural Studies.
Katy has devised various original study guides and materials, and has written and validated two Higher Education Diplomas; she also has experience as private tutor. Katy is a published poet and her own creative practice is fundamentally embedded within her teaching.
Katy talks about her experience as a curriculum designer:
The needs and motivations of my learners are the driving force behind everything I do, therefore I can be confident that the curriculum I design equips them with the skills and knowledge that they need to progress towards success. My own creative and reflective practice informs all of the curriculum decisions I make, as I believe that these practices ensure that learners become autonomous and innovative thinkers. My experience with working with both A Level students and undergraduates is quite unique, and has given me an insight of the learning journey that most educators are not privy too. I understand the fears and expectations students have when they transition into Higher Education, and I make educational decisions that meet these emotional demands whilst maintaining rigorous and stimulating demands of the students.
