Mentoring is an ideal way of developing professional practice through structured conversations with a supportive colleague.  The Learning and Teaching Enhancement Strand is ideally suited to those newly appointed in learning and teaching lecturing and support roles, experienced lecturing and learning and teaching support staff wishing to gain mentoring in specific areas of expertise and university staff wishing to develop academic leadership.

This session will provide the opportunity for Ann, as lead of the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Strand to answer any questions new and aspiring mentors might have in their new role as mentor.  Ann will also explain the mentoring process and the support available to mentors as they develop their skills and knowledge in mentoring. 

Ann's professional background is in human resources and learning and development, with previously experience at Birbeck College, University of London and the BBC.   In 2011, Ann joined the Educational Development Unit as Academic Skills Developer to lead the provision of skills enhancement opportunities for teaching staff engaged in EDU projects.

In April 2018 Ann joined the Learning and Teaching Academy with a remit to take forward learning and teaching professional development.  This includes leading on the learning and teaching enhancement strand of the mentoring scheme; taking forward the engagement with academic partner colleges to support learning and teaching enhancement and the implementation of the graduate attributes.

Ann is interested in leadership theory and practice particularly in the tertiary education sector. She completed a Masters in Leadership and Management in 2015 and a Post Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Tertiary Education in 2016. She is a fellow of the HEA and has mentored others to gain accreditation.
