Lynne provides learning development modules, workshops and individual tutorials primarily for international students across the school. She also trains peer language advisors and delivers academic development workshops for colleagues.
Lynne’s priority is to support student learning both by working with students’ learning development directly and influencing curriculum, teaching and assessment design. She takes an ‘academic literacies’ approach to learning development, and brokers between staff and students within the School’s learning community, deconstructing discipline specific literacy practices to give students more equal learning opportunities.
Lynne was the first in the family to go to university and graduated from UCLan in 1991. She came back to work at UCLan in 2000 after teaching on learning development programmes for almost a decade in various universities in Istanbul.
