Biography

Suzanne is a Senior Lecturer in Accountancy; she is also a fully qualified Chartered Accountant and worked in a professional accountancy practice before joining the university in 2005. Her current role is very focused on learning and teaching and the student experience.  

Her scholarship activities are centered on assessment and feedback and the use of technology. She is currently investigating a range of areas, including peer feedback and how technology can be integrated into teaching and assessment practices to enhance the student learning experience.  Her work has been presented at many conferences including the British Accounting and Finance Association Accounting Education Special Interest Group and the Chartered Association of Business Schools annual conferences. Suzanne’s scholarship activities and her teaching and assessment practices are integrated and complimentary. Suzanne is continuing to develop her interest in the area of Accounting Education and in particular the power of peer feedback.

Suzanne initially studied Statistics at the University of Glasgow and obtained a first class honours degree. She then joined Hymans Robertson as a trainee actuary and remained in this position for two years. After this, she moved to Wylie & Bisset and completed her CA training. She stayed on with the firm and progressed through several different roles until she reached the position of Corporate Department Assistant Manager.  

Within this role Suzanne was responsible for a varied portfolio of clients, but was also in charge of the compliance review process within the firm. It was her responsibility to ensure work was properly undertaken and to check that the financial statements produced were properly prepared and included all necessary disclosures. She was also very involved in the training of CA and ACCA students and would run in house training sessions covering a wide range of topics (many of which would be weak areas identified by the compliance review process).

Suzanne decided to concentrate on the teaching aspect of her experience and left Wylie & Bisset to join the University.  Since joining Accounting & Finance at Glasgow, Suzanne has completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice and she has been accepted as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
