My academic background is in sociology, anthropology, and education for social development. My research interests are in practice-based education, interprofessional learning, and technology enhanced learning with a focus on lifeworld-led approaches for facilitating transformative learning and humanising care. I am committed to developing collaborative practice and social integration for marginalised people, involving humanising arts-based practices for enriching caring and wellbeing.
My research experience revolves around critical theory perspectives, encompassing case study research, systematic review, qualitative and mixed methods. I have worked with international partners from the Education for Practice Institute, Charles Sturt University, Australia and am currently Vice-Chair of the Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE). I am REF Outputs Champion for UoA23 and, as Co-I and Impact Champion for the Fair Access Research Project, have undertaken research investigating widening participation (WP) in the organisational learning culture of institutions; exploring photovoice and photo-elicitation for revealing memories and evoking stories of lived experiences for WP students; and a systematic review on the impact of WP outreach initiatives...
My scholarly activities are informed by a student-centred philosophy with experiential learning and critical reflection as the focus for educational praxis in higher education. As an educational practitioner and qualitative researcher, I have led innovations in learning, teaching and assessment, leading education development projects, and pursuing research interests in pedagogical scholarship. Initiatives have included introducing blended learning strategies, developing computer assisted assessment and e-portfolios for undergraduates, and promoting online group supervision for postgraduate researchers. I have also led and contributed to teacher education programmes.more

- My voice, my story: the lived experience of being a non-traditional student at university. This workshop enables audience immersion in multimedia stories co-created by students using novel social participatory research to elict lived experiences of being a non-traditional student at university by engaging in telling/re-telling of stories (Jones, 2015). We focus on students from non-traditional backgrounds because research shows how the lived experiences of these students are often marginalised by institutions (Hunt et al., forthcoming; Thomas, 2012). Photovoice is seen to be effective in capturing stories and sharing the lives of non-traditional students (Warne et al., 2012; Minthorn and Marsh, 2016).
