Personal and Professional Development


Anna looks after the orientation and professional development of newly appointed lecturers as they work through probation and develop new responsibilities. She does this via individual meetings and a Seminar, which is themed around the basis for the probation (teaching, research, and administration) and which provides a holistic view of how Cambridge works, and a forum for discussion of individual perspectives.

An important part of Anna’s work is also to do with the training of academics who supervise research students. This is often a new role for lecturers, and it is important that they are not only conversant with the ‘administration; at Cambridge, but also that they should consider the implication of interacting in such a cosmopolitan university.

Anna contributes to other aspects of educational development and is a tutor on the Teaching Associates Programme.
