Dr Alison Truelove joined the Business School on a full-time basis in 2016 after contributing for several years on a consultancy basis (and as an adjunct lecturer) to developing the School’s approach to teaching and learning. This included designing and writing the assessment material for the UK’s first professionally-accredited MOOC, Discovering Business and Society (with ACCA on FutureLearn). She has previously held teaching and research positions at the Universities of London and Cambridge, and has taught and published in the areas of historical linguistics, medieval culture and literature, and digital humanities.
As the School’s Lead Academic Tutor, Alison oversees our students’ transition into higher education, and provides tailored, evidence-based academic development support to encourage all students in the Business School to achieve their full potential. She also leads on staff development aligned to enhancing teaching practice, module design and assessment, and is Director of the Centre for Innovation in Business Education.
Her research interests focus on identifying and developing effective interventions to support students’ academic achievement, on designing innovative and inclusive modes of online/blended learning, and on developing resources to strengthen students’ critical engagement with their learning. She also works with colleagues across the university and beyond to promote widening participation and interdisciplinarity in higher education.
Alison is an associate member of the university’s Centre for Social Mobility and is on the management board of the International Institute for Cultural Enquiry.
