Development of the higher and further education curriculum

Areas of expertise

We aim to research and develop best practice in delivery of the curriculum in higher and further education settings. For example, research into teaching and learning of midwifery in higher education seeks to improve the match between curriculum delivery and professional learning, and includes research into teaching and learning of contraception (Susan Walker and Gerry Davis), physiology (Nina Whittle) and attitudes to women (Claire Hooks).
