Consulting

Working with Centre for Academic, Professional and Organisational Development (CAPOD) consultanting on various university initiatives that involve further developing students’ academic and professional development. My role as a consultant involves advising on course content and design, as well as creating educational videos to aid learning. At times I also deliver talks to different cohorts on general study skills and educational psychology themes like grit, perseverance, resilience, and mindset.
