Research

Dr Camila Devis-Rozental is a Senior Lecturer at Bournemouth University, a senior fellow Advance HE, and the UK representative of IPPAed (International Positive Psychology Education division). She is also the author of the book: Developing socio-emotional intelligence in Higher education scholars.

Her expertise is in Education and professional practice and the role that emotions and social interactions can have on effective learning and teaching. She is also interested in the notion that enjoyment and achievement should be intrinsically linked within the classroom for successful learning.

She completed her professional doctorate (DProf) exploring socio- emotional intelligence within the context of higher education and has presented her work at various national and international conferences. In 2017 she was awarded the Association of Commonwealth Universities Early Career Academic grant to present her work in Canada.

Within her thesis she developed "My research tree" an innovative tool to illustrate the research process at various levels.

Her thinking has been influenced by social learning theorists such as Vygotsky, Bandura, Rogoff; humanists like Rogers and Maslow and ideas such as Emotional intelligence and positive psychology.

As a lifelong learner she is always researching and looking for interesting ideas to extend her knowledge and understanding. For example she has been awarded a BU Learning and Teaching Fellowship to develop her research entitled: Mind the gap:supporting students to have a successful transition from school to university, where she aims to enhance the current provision and further strengthen the support given to both students and academics to develop areas of SEI to enhance overall wellbeing...
