In episode 22 we chat to Claire Hart who is an Associate Professor within Psychology at the University of Southampton. Claire researches the fascinating subject area of narcissistic dysfunction. Her current projects focus on its manifestation in different contexts, one of which is the pursuit of educational goals. Claire leads on the innovative module called the 'psychology of attractiveness' where she utilises some pretty cool teaching approaches. We talk to her in depth about this interesting field and how she engages her students with her subject matter.

In episode 21 we catch up with Dr Phil Higham, who is a Reader in Cognitive Psychology within Psychology at the University of Southampton. His research focuses on long-term human memory and metacognition and identifies methods to ensure that student learning endures over time. We discuss strategies for the role of feedback in learning-  something which is very relevant to the move towards blended and online delivery. Whereas many students revise by studying and restudying course material, research shows that they would be better off being more active by generating answers to potential questions and then receiving corrective feedback.

As the key person to have University-wide oversight of all activities relating to education, we asked Alex, what is a typical (non-covid-19) day like for you, and other important questions like do you get time to eat lunch?! As you might expect, this podcast focuses mostly on educational leadership and strategy, but we do manage to find some time to ask Alex to reflect upon his days of frontline teaching and the approaches he took when he was a fresh young whipper snapper!

Tony is well known amongst medical students for his inimitable lecturing style that usually involves his characteristic 'dead-pan' delivery with copious amounts of dry wit thrown in for good measure! In this podcast we have a relaxed chat with him about his pharmacology textbook, his teaching approaches and his mild disliking of live lecture capture recording!
