I am currently completing my MAHEP at UEA and am writing up my dissertation. This is looking at speech and language therapy graduates’ perspectives of their learning on the BSc course. As a result of this work I co-presented a poster titled ‘Problem-based Learning and the Making of Speech & Language Therapists’ at the RCSLT National Conference in September 2012. I am interested in the use, application and effectiveness of problem-based learning both at university and in clinical practice. I am also involved in developing the AHP Professionalism Charter. I am a member of the Participation Team in AHP.
During 2011 I was involved in a number of local projects promoting the Year of Communication. In September 2011 I organised a symposium for early years practitioners and professionals titled ‘Making 0-3 Count’. This brought together over 200 delegates from Norfolk and Suffolk whose work involves them with caring for and educating young children.
I am currently working with the nursery at UEA to explore training needs for their staff. I am interested in promoting all aspects of very young children’s health and well-being and in particular in developing their communication skills.
I am also exploring opportunities that creative art projects provides for developing a communication dialogue between children and carers and this has involved working with the Sainsbury’s Centre for Visual Arts.In 2012 I joined a team of my fellow lecturers to progress Professionalism in the School and co-wrote articles for professional publications outlining our work. Together with Rosie Mason (OT lecturer) I have been asked to present the work on the Professionalism Charter to a group of speech & language therapists in Reading.
