I am course convener for the BAHons Journalism course, a one-year full-time postgraduate course that prepares students to work as media professionals in an ever-changing industry. This course is the flagship programme of the Department of Journalism. As course convener I have managed a curriculum renewal and restructuring process that came into effect in 2018.
My specific fields of teaching are Media Ethics and Research Methodology. I lecture and supervise students on both honours and master’s level in these subject areas. On honours level we generally take 26 students. The number of students on master’s level vary year on year. Since the start of 2018 I have guided around 13 master’s students through the basics of research methodology in Journalism Studies; and five master’s students, including international candidates, for the specialist Media Ethics module. I also supervise three thesis students who specialise in Media Ethics-related subjects and who aim to graduate soon.
