Julie Binney BA(Hons), PGCE ( Sec), MSc.( Dist), FHEA
I have been at the university for over 20 years and have been involved in initial teacher education and both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Prior to this, I worked in secondary schools and further education colleges where I taught practical, vocational and examination physical education and sport. I have a first-class honours degree in physical education.
I am currently the Course Leader for the BSc (Hons) Physical Education School Sport programme. My experiences and skills as an applied practitioner mean that I can teach a range of subjects but currently I am involved in outdoor and adventure activities, the sociology of physical education and developing the professional practice of learners. My MSc. (with Distinction) in Advancing Professional Practice is a result of the many years of pedagogical mentoring that I have done with younger or less experienced staff in the university, and the staff mentors in partner schools as part of the teacher training courses.
Current research interests focus on decolonising the HE curriculum, academic identity and practice.
In recognition of my commitment to supporting the learning of students at Sheffield Hallam, I was awarded the University Level Inspirational Teacher Award in both 2016 and 2020. I also received the Sheffield Hallam Staff Champion for Student Voice Award in 2020.
