Teaching

I have experience delivering classes and seminars, one-to-one or one-to-two tutorials, and lectures. I’ve designed and taught numerous undergraduate courses on Arthurian literature, Old English literature and Middle English literature. I also have experience marked finals papers at Oxford and conducting undergraduate admissions interviews.

Beyond day-to-day teaching, I’ve taught specialist final-year undergraduate classes on ‘the material text’, an interdisciplinary session on medieval reading practices for beginning postgraduates, and classes in palaeography, transcription, and codicological working methods for postgraduates on Oxford’s MSt in English (650–1550) and MSt in Medieval Studies. In 2016 and again in 2017 I was invited to give a lecture at the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School for graduate students, researchers and technologists. I enjoy using medieval manuscripts in my teaching and was a Teaching Intern at the Bodleian Library in the 2014–15 academic year.

I’m accredited as an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. My portfolio for this accreditation was a practice-led study of the benefits and challenges offered by groups of students from a range of pedagogical backgrounds.

Outside formal university teaching I’ve run taster sessions for secondary school students and have done occasional consultancy work reading Middle English aloud or coaching media and museum clients to do so (see my contact details on the homepage here if you would like to contact me about this).
