Hello there, I’m Amani Bell.
The blog’s title is a reference to the song They call me Dr Worm, by They Might be Giants. In this blog I write about university teaching and learning, with a mix of practical, theoretical and personal commentary. I welcome blog posts from others; please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m an academic developer working at the University of Sydney. My research focuses on how academics, particularly those early in their career, develop their teaching via critical reflection, peer observation and engagement with students. You can find more information about my publications on Academia.
My teaching and learning development work involves teaching in the Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies (Higher Education) and the Principles & Practice of University Teaching & Learning program, and leading a new project on sessional staff development.
