Focus and specialities

I work with distance learning postgraduate courses. Contact me if you are interested in offering your students learner-centred sessions on:

  •  Building effective search strategies
  •  Literature searching
  •  Searching web resources like Google, Cochrane, and Trip efficiently
  •  Avoiding plagiarism
  •  Reference management

I can facilitate discussion about how social media can be of benefit to the health professional, or offer specific tools skills training such as Twitter and Prezi.

I welcome a team teaching approach: this helps to integrate the sessions I offer into the course content, which gives added value to the student. 

I am able to offer sessions online for students who are based away from campus.

Staff training

I offer training for staff and researchers. View the full programme for details.

Student drop ins

I also offer drop in sessions for students with specific questions or difficulties - most often these are related to literature searching. Bring along your question, and we'll try to find some answers together.

Recommend a book

If you would like to suggest a new book to help with your coursework, you can complete a suggestion form online.

We can also help you find books on the shelves! Don't be afraid to ask!
