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.
QAA Enhancement Theme (2020-2023) - Resilient Learning Communities Gould, Helyn (Principal Investigator) Bovis, Christopher (Co-investigator) 01-Jan-2020 - 31-Jan-2023 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. 01-Jan-2020 - 31-Jan-2020 Students as Partners in Learning Enhancement Bonnar, Lizann (Academic) Willison, Debra (Academic) McLaren, Andrew (Academic) Thomson, Avril (Academic) Gould, Helyn (Academic) Thomson, Linda (Academic) HEA funded workshop (£750) on working in partnership with students on a range of learning enhancement projects. 05-Jan-2014 - 05-Jan-2014 Engaging Students in Delivering High Quality, Consistent, University Wide Student Assessment and Feedback Thomson, Avril (Principal Investigator) Bonnar, Lizann (Principal Investigator) Gould, Helyn (Principal Investigator) Willison, Debra (Principal Investigator) Educational Excellence Funding £28,000 30-Jan-2013 - 01-Jan-2013 Roll-out of Student Led Peer and Community Personal Development Planning (PC PDP) Willison, Debra (Principal Investigator) Gould, Helyn (Principal Investigator) Green, Brian (Principal Investigator) McLaren, Andrew (Principal Investigator) Sayer, Philip (Principal Investigator) Thomson, Avril (Principal Investigator) Education Excellence funding (£19759.28) supported the engagement of student interns from across all four faculties to support the roll out of PDP. 06-Jan-2013 - 13-Jan-2013 Engaging Students in Delivering High Quality, Consistent, University Wide Student Assessment and Feedback Willison, Debra (Principal Investigator) Bonnar, Lizann (Principal Investigator) Gould, Helyn (Principal Investigator) Education Excellence Funding (£27996.25) supported the engagement of student interns to co-create assessment and feedback processes to inform the creation of a university wide assessment and feedback policy. 01-Jan-2012 - 28-Jan-2012
