Responsibilities

Teaching Fellow

  • Natasha has taught Human Anatomy and Physiology for over ten years to undergraduates across Life Sciences
  • She is responsible for co-ordinating and delivering teaching programmes within the School of Biological Sciences
  • She advocates the use of technology where it enhances the learning experience and has road-tested several novel approaches for her department, testing both the learning benefits and ease of use for academics and students

Areas of Interest

  • Natasha's research background is in platelet biology, haematology
  • Natasha is actively engaged in teaching and learning research
  • Collaborator on the Leverhulme Trust funded project on 3D learning in a collaborative environment using haptics. The cross-institution team (University of Reading and Kings College London) aims to enhance understanding of cell biology using cutting-edge haptics technology (touch/VR)
  • Investigating novel ways to improve student engagement with marking criteria and feedback (in large classes)
  • Investigating whether attendance or other measures better reflect engagement in our students
  • Use of electronic card readers to monitor student attendance / engagement

Impact, Enterprise and Outreach

  • Lead educator for the online Heart Health course, taken by over 55,000 participants, completing about 1,000,000 learning activities and posting 90,000 comments
  • STEM Ambassador
  • 6th form college presentations to prospective students

Teaching

  • Part 1: Pathology and Histology, Human Physiology
  • Part 2: Clinical Biomedicine, Endocrinology
  • Part 3: Group leader for both Systematic Literature Review and Teaching, Outreach and Science Communication final year projects

Esteem Factors

  • University Teaching Fellow Award (a prestigious award for individuals who have demonstrated individual excellence, and made a significant contribution to the development of teaching and learning at the University)
  • Fellow of the HEA
