As Programme Leader for the Criminology courses I support and advise staff on a wide variety of issues relating to the Programme.
As placement co-ordinator, I work with a number of external agencies to promote our students to them as volunteers, access placement opportunities, facilitate teaching on our Level 6 simulation module and facilitate the annual Employability Fair.
I've worked at Sheffield Hallam University since 2005 in various academic roles. As the course leader for the MSc Forensic Criminology, I wrote and successfully validated the course and all teaching materials for the Criminology section. As course leader for all Criminology courses I advised and supported the subject group through successful revalidation and reintegration away from the ASS Programme towards a new Department (LCCJ).
I have led on and developed a number of work related learning projects, including the Employability Fair, an event to facilitate further collaboration and partnerships across the criminal justice and related sectors, further access to placement opportunities and implemented the first simulation modules within the Criminology subject group. As course leader for BSc Criminology/Psychology, I have liaised with staff from both subject groups to promote both course identity and student experience.
As programme leader I am continuing to develop ideas to enhance both the student and staff experience, with a focus on collaboration with the Student Union, the E4E Agenda and promoting the activities of staff across the Programme.
I have developed and deliver modules involving working on developing the study skills modules in collaboration with various staff across the faculty to enhance student experience, promote autonomous learning and develop key IT innovations, Mentally Disordered Offenders and the simulation modules. The simulation modules have been designed with direct reference to a number of criminal justice professionals who also teach on the modules to show students how cases progress through the criminal justice system.
