After completing a PhD in Educational Research from Lancaster University, UK, she joined Middlesex University’s offshore campus in 2008 where she has taught on a range of programmes and has worked towards bringing new programmes to that campus. She is currently the campus Teaching and Learning Coordinator and the Programme Coordinator for the MA Education (Leadership, Management and Change) and the PGCertHE. Her main research interests lie in transnational higher education, particularly in its impact on academic work practices and identities.
The conference session will present the branch campus perspective on Middlesex as a global university, and it will be centred around 2 short videos featuring academics and students at the Dubai and Mauritius campuses talking about how they see Middlesex in global terms. They also talk about what being part of Middlesex means to them and how academic standards are maintained across campuses, which is a key factor in the success of a global university. Participants in the session will be given the opportunity to reflect on their own understanding of being part of a ‘global’ university and how that affects their academic work practices.
