Previously a Postgraduate Recruitment Officer in the Student Admissions and Recruitment Office, and Programme Manager for University Summer Schools, Becky has worked at the University since 2012. Before that, Becky was a Teaching Fellow at the University of Sheffield, where she taught Old English and carried out research on Anglo-Saxon magic and medicine.

Becky is passionate about teaching and learning, and has been recognised by an award of Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, and a nomination for a Warwick Award in Teaching Excellence. Inspired and encouraged by Celia Whitchurch’s recent work on ‘third-space professionals’,1 Becky seeks out opportunities for teaching and learning innovation that challenge and respond to assumed hierarchies and boundaries by bringing together administrative and academic staff in collaborative teams. For example, she works with IATL colleagues Amy Clarke, Phil Gaydon, and Naomi de la Tour on the transdisciplinary teaching and learning project, The Dark Would, and received funding to develop a programme which recognised, developed and rewarded the skills of administrative staff who are involved in teaching and learning.

She also enjoys working with students and people outside the academy; in 2012 she founded the Sheffield Anglo-Saxon and Medieval Society, which brings together academics, independent scholars and members of the public, and is also a Public Engagement Ambassador for the National Centre for Coordinating Public Engagement.
