Dr Catherine (Kay) Hack

I am currently on secondment with the HEA as a Consultant in Academic Practice. As well as consultancy I am involved in STEM activity across the HE sector, and am managing the current call for Cyber Security projects.
I am a keen advocate of using social media for CPD, and love engaging with colleagues from across the sector at the weekly #LTHEchats on twitter.

I will be leading the discussion on Wednesday October 14th, on Pedagogic Research Ethics. If you want to find out more check out this post, “Does pedagogic research require ethical review?”.

Prior to joining the HEA I was a  lecturer in the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Ulster and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have extensive experience of on-campus and distance learning teaching in Bioethics and Bioinformatics.

My teaching philosophy is to empower students to learn by ensuring student-centred delivery supported by technology based learning resources designed to develop and embed independent learning skills. This philosophy has been informed and developed through my experience of:

  • Teaching both on-campus and via  distance learning;
  • Administration and quality assurance  of a number of  programmes, including programmes delivered in collaboration with international partners and a substantial distance learning programme;
  • Programme development, validation and revalidation;
  • External examining
  • Administration and quality assurance  as Subject Partnership Manager working with Further and Higher Education Colleges to deliver a range of programmes from Access though to Postgraduate level;
  • Pedagogic research
  • Outreach activity.

  1. Thanks again for a useful workshop at Writtle College in March. The day has made me realise that there are a lot of things I do well, but has also shown me areas I can improve on with some guidance as to how to go approach assessment.
