Fairness, particularly for people with disabilities.
Taking action, not expecting someone else to solve the problem.

Important life lessons
I am persitant.
I am trying to be less driven by expectations and to be more lead by what is right for me.
I like to work for a cause e.g. social inclusion, rather than just for money.
1st degree in Molecular Biology in 1997
Pg Dip Social Work in 2007
Pg Cert MHOA in 2011
Why I applied
To fulfil my potential;
I enjoy teaching;
to do something I'm good at and
To contribute to a valuable field.
What I will bring
Broad knowledge and experience of the field;
A good ability to teach (and manage) a class;
Knowledge of teaching methods and experience of using them.
An enthusiasm for improvement
Example 1
I have worked in Social Care and Social Work for 15 years and have worked with a wide range of client groups' from children to older people. My knowledge is up to date and relevant.
Example 2
I lectured in this department recently. I met the many challenges involved in this role from public speaking, co-ordinating with the scheme of work, setting/designing and then marking a test, managing a class, dealing with disruptive students and many more.
Example 3
Some of the teaching methods I have used:
PowerPoint Presentation; quizes (both on paper and online); case studies; group work such as creating a poster and then presenting it and illustrative videos.

I consider myself thorough and 'hands-on'. I go round he class so that I know how each student is doing and give as close to 1-1 attention as possible. I feel a strong sense of responsibility for getting the class to meet the learning outcomes of the lecture.

I am prepared to 'go the extra mile', as are all staff I worked with, to ensure that students get a quality education.

I take care to meet the additional learning needs of any student and have supported a student to have their additional learning need formally recognised.
