Louise Woodcock

Role: Director of Academic Practice

Institution: University of Leeds

Email: l.woodcock@leeds.ac.uk

Key areas of expertise:

I’m responsible for academic staff development – teaching & learning and research – at all career stages, from PGR through to academic leadership development. This includes provision accredited by AdvanceHE or aligned with HR Excellence (Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers). Currently I’m working with colleagues to introduce enhanced support for curriculum and learning design. I’m also a member of AHE’s Fellowship and Accreditation Expert Advisory Group.

Research interests:

I’m particularly interested in the links between learning, teaching and research: how this is experienced in practice by staff, PGRs and students, and the implications for academic development, career development and recognition.
