Dr Robert Blake
I am the Learning Developer for the Faculty of Science and Technology. My role is to provide additional study support to all students within the Faculty. The support aims to enable students to reach their full potential through effective study practices by developing their scientific writing, effective reading, citation and critical thinking, and with international students on their use of language and grammar.
I also work with students on a range of study issues, such as time management, motivation, revision techniques and also Specific Learning Difficulties in relation to study. I deliver scientific writing courses and writing groups, departmental workshops, 1-to-1 consultations as well as providing online resources. I work closely with departments to embed academic skills teaching into the curriculum.
I completed my PhD (Linguistics) in 2014 and draw upon my academic writing research background in my teaching. I received a Teaching Prize in 2007.
