My current research projects/interests include an exploration of the nature of community ‘assets’, an evaluation of a Health Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (HIDVA) project and institutional differences for teaching and learning in HE. My previous research has focused on the experiences of disabled students in Higher Education, the health and healthcare of people with learning disabilities and ‘real world’ learning for students in HE.
