Dr Debbie Pope

Debbie’s background is in physiological and epidemiological (cancer) research, becoming interested in psychology later in her career after observing the different learning approaches of her three children. Subsequently she completed a postgraduate conversion course in Psychological Studies at UCLan and received a scholarship to complete her PhD in educational research. Debbie became a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at UCLan and Programme Leader for Psychology at Edge Hill University, before returning to UCLan in 2013. Debbie believes her previous experiences have always enhanced her approach to teaching and learning and she has always been involved in supporting inclusivity, working as a Disability Needs Assessor for students in HE alongside her academic duties.
