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.
