My role is to support and develop university-wide initiatives to improve learning and teaching at Strathclyde. My work is focused on three areas: supporting our work around student transitions (the current enhancement theme); developing and embedding graduate attributes at Strathclyde; and sharing effective practice in L&T. I also lead on Strathclyde’s TESTA pilot. Before arriving at Strathclyde in October 2015 I was Surveys Manager at the Higher Education Academy, where I developed the UK Engagement Survey. Prior to that I taught applied and professional ethics at the University of Leeds, after receiving a PhD in philosophy from the same institution in 2008.

 

 

 


Liam Fuller

My name is Liam Fuller and I'm the elected officer responsible for the remit of Education & Employability at AUSA. This also includes being responsible for Academic Representation where I help facilitate the Class and Programme Representatives

I was elected in March to represent all students to the University and beyond on education and employability issues and points - below you can find my manifesto and updates for the year so far.

They year ahead will see an exciting change with the way in which AUSA coordinates its academic representation - 'reps'. We will be launching Reps Matter sessions where reps can come along to chat, learn new skills and become effective  listeners and deliverers of feedback within their courses. You can follow all the updates on the Academic Rep webpage.
