“I am extremely proud to have been awarded a National Teaching Fellowship as I feel that this is a reflection of the passion and expertise that I bring to my subject. For me, teaching and research go hand-in-hand: my particular passions are ornithology and conservation (anything connected with birds and how to conserve both birds and other species fascinates me) and the 20+ articles I have published underpin my Avian Biology and Conservation Ecology modules on the course. I also frequently invite the students to work with me on my research projects: I have now published 18 papers jointly with students and I am always delighted with the level of commitment and skill that they demonstrate.”

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
