Leadership and Management
2016 Chair, Arts and Humanities Faculty Assessment Board (Undergraduate)
Overall responsibility for the examination and assessment processes of the Faculty’s undergraduate programmes, involving the assessment of some 3000 students.
2015 Acting Chair, Arts and Humanities Faculty Assessment Board (Postgraduate Taught)
Overall responsibility for the examination and assessment processes of the Faculty’s Masters programmes, involving the assessment of just under 1000 students.
2011 – Chair, Department of Digital Humanities Postgraduate Programme Sub-Assessment Board.
I had responsibility for assessment across all three MA Programmes, at a time when the Department’s shift from being a research environment to being a teaching one was creating new requirements for this body. I implemented a consistent regime of assessment management for all three MAs; providing common standards for dealing quickly and robustly, yet sensitively, with disciplinary issues; implementing a standardized approach to mitigating circumstances and assignment extensions; and regularising the way the Department deals with its three External Examiners and with the Faculty. Under my direction, the Board has come to command the confidence and trust of DDH staff and students, and to ensure that teaching colleagues are fully supported in the execution of their assessment and administrative duties. This addressed a number of problems that existed before I took over (and which the expansion of DDH’s teaching were making more acute), where each programme effectively had its own Board, leading to inconsistency and ambiguity across many areas for both staff and students.
2013 – Admissions Tutor, MA in Digital Humanities, King’s College London, I
As Admissions Tutor, I promoted my pedagogical vision of Digital Humanities as a blend of theory and practice; seeking particularly to address the historic perception in the community that DDH is a Department of world leading research projects, rather than a centre of teaching excellence. By doing so, I oversaw a 60% rise in enrolments.
I also have the role of Departmental Student Recruitment Lead, with the role overseeing DDH’s marketing and recruitment activities, and representing the Department on the School PGT Recruitment Committee. 2009 I coordinated contributions from the Arts and Humanities communities and King’s College London to RCUK’s International Review of the UK e-Science Programme.
