Supporting and enhancing higher education through changing and uncertain times
Since 2008, I’ve supported thousands of academic and professional services colleagues in the higher education sector to engage in strategic change and the strategic enhancement of their curriculum, pedagogies, policies and practices.

My experience has been built working in and with a wide range of contrasting universities – from fully established institutions undertaking change, to those at the beginning of their higher education journey – and other sector bodies.
As an experienced academic researcher with a further seven years of experience leading national educational policy evaluations, I can also help you to think about gathering evidence to address the tricky ‘so what?’ question.
It all starts with a free short initial chat to ensure that I understand your aims, goals and challenges. From there I’ll recommend some next steps and will very much look forward to working with you. In the unlikely event I’m not the right person for the job, I’ll be happy to recommend others from my network of expert HE colleagues.

"Liz’s knowledge and expertise proved invaluable in shaping our institutional understanding of the impact of our learning and teaching initiatives. Her independent critique challenged our established thinking and drew out new themes for consideration and future exploration. Liz’s external perspective enabled her to constructively challenge and positively provoke. Liz proved extremely flexible in supporting us against tight internal deadlines, and demonstrated a consistent willingness to go above and beyond in order to ensure successful outcomes."
