Teaching Interests

My teaching responsibilities are essentially focused on undergraduate education within the Podiatry programme.  My teaching consists of a combination of lectures, tutorials, workshops, practical and clinical supervision and varies depending on the module aims and content. Evidence based practice underpins the Podiatry profession and my teaching involves critical thinking, problem based learning, discussions and the application of theoretical knowledge into a practical/professional environment.
