Dr Linda Rowan MEd, PhD, SFHEA

Teaching Consultant

Academic Operations

As a Teaching Consultant with the National Centre of Teaching and Learning, I walk alongside and assist university teaching staff in their professional teacher development. I have over 15 years experience teaching university courses, including undergraduate and postgraduate courses on Tertiary Teaching and Learning.  My  research investigates the interface between teaching practice and student learning, student's reflexive development of skills and capabilities as 21st century citizens, and supporting dyslexic students study success. I believe the more we know about the interaction between teaching and learning the better equipped teachers can be to support student succes. PhD & SHEA Fellow
