Research interests

I joined the University in 1992 and was originally a project manager on a range of educational technology projects within the University until 2007, when I changed focus to programme management within the faculty. My publications relate to the education field, focusing on the areas of educational technology, work based learning and learning analytics.


Quality Assuring the Employer Role in GAs
Gould, Helyn (Principal Investigator) Milligan, Catherine (Co-investigator) Green, Brian (Co-investigator)
This project aims to explore the employer role in delivering quality WBL in GAs. Within the QEF, GA providers are required to implement mechanisms to ensure effective arrangements are in place for managing academic standards and the quality of the student learning experience. HEIs must align to the UK Quality Code for Higher Education, which outlines the expectations and standards for managing the quality of provision and specific expectations for the delivery of degree level education. Provision is quality assured by the provider to be ‘credible and secure’ both in academic terms and in the context of Graduate Apprenticeships, in relation to the WBL elements that take place in the workplace. This project examines and establishes best practice in three specific aspects of GAs:

• Employer input to the design of the award;
• Employer input into planning the WBL content;
• Employer input into delivery.
The results will contribute to a broader QA project currently underway.
