Ms Sarah Honeychurch
- Fellow - Teaching Excellence Initiative in Business School Learning and Teaching (Adam Smith Business School)
Sarah joined the Business School in 2018 having previously held posts in LEADS as Good Practice Adviser and Learning Technology Specialist. She has a BA and MA in Philosophy from the University of Southampton and she is currently writing up a PhD in Education at the University of Glasgow.
Sarah’s current research interests focus on the importance for learning of peer interaction and peer support, and she is developing a portfolio of learning designs that help to facilitate peer learning. In particular, she is an advocate of models of learning, teaching and assessment that help students to develop critical skills that help to give them a justified sense of confidence in their abilities. Peer review is an obvious candidate here, but less well-known designs such as Patchwork Text and Adaptive Comparative Judgement (ACJ) also have potential, and she is keen to evaluate their use in Higher Education.
Sarah is interested in working with colleagues across ASBS in order to develop and support models of learning appropriate for Business School Education.
