Miss Jodi Withers
Academic Skills Lecturer
I taught English and study skills in FE and HE before taking up the position of Academic Skills Lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton in 2015. I teach level 3 and 4 modules across the Faculty's Foundation Year and first year undergraduate programmes, as well as delivering individual academic skills support to students across the faculty. Supporting students in realising their potential is central to my personal teaching philosophy.
- Academic skills
- Critical thinking
- Success in higher education
- Student reading and writing practices
I am particularly interested in the psychology of learning, including deep, surface and strategic approaches to learning, self-regulated learning, and student motivation. I am currently collaborating with a colleague on a study exploring the process and effects of using computer software when paraphrasing.
