Salzburg Academy on Media & Global Change

Since 2010, I have taught as a faculty member at the Salzburg Academy on Media & Global Change – a three week summer school and multi-dimensional initiative of the Salzburg Global Seminar, which promotes media literacy, global citizenship and cross-cultural understanding.


Innovation & Awards

As part of my academic work at Bournemouth University I have developed innovative teaching and assessment methods, such as the use of dissertation workbooks, annotated bibliographies, reflective portfolios and assessment schemes, which in 2008 and 2009 led to successive BU Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning.

My work exploring students’ relationship with the media through their own reflections – as well as its pedagogic implications – got shortlisted for the 2011 Vice-Chancellor’s Award for An Excellent Educational Experience Underpinned by Research at Bournemouth University.

I have been received the ‘You’re Brilliant’ award by Bournemouth University Students’ Union twice (2012, 2016).
