Department of Biomedical Science – Dr Katherine Linehan

“Inclusion is key to the teaching and learning of my students.”

Katherine Linehan is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Science who has received two Senate Awards for her teaching. She is an expert in designing inclusive teaching sessions in which the contributions of individual students are valued.

Having spent over 19 years in Higher Education designing classes that appeal to all learners, her aim is to tailor the learning resources and teaching sessions so that they are student-focused, engaging and accessible to all. This promotes a positive learning environment where the contribution of the individual is valued, irrelevant of the size of the cohort.

Katherine recently created a MOOC on Forensic Facial Reconstruction which 6,000 people from around the world signed up to.
