Louisa Hill


I have worked with a diverse body of students at foundation year degree to doctoral level in a variety of higher education institutions.  I am passionate about enhancing the student experience through the use of student-centred and inclusive teaching practices.  I actively lead continual professional development activities for teaching-focussed academics at local, national and international level.
