This PhD work is currently being re-worked into a book, due for publish in 2021.
Charlotte has won research grants from the University’s Institute for Learning and Teaching for the 17/18 and 18/19 academic years, with both research projects focusing on issues of diversity and inclusion within Higher Education. This research has led to Charlotte receiving the ‘most impactful teaching’ award at The British Psychological Society’s Division of Academics, Researchers, and Teachers Conference in May 2019. In addition, Charlotte now runs a University-wide staff training on inclusive assessments, based on this research. Finally, the work from this project led Charlotte to be awarded with the University’s Student Teaching and Recognition Award for Lecturer of the Year in Advancing Diversity and Equality, 2019. She continued this success in 2020, being awarded UoN’s Tech Savvy Lecturer of the Year.
Charlotte is also situated within a cross-university research group – Digital Families – with colleagues from The Open University, Keele University, and The University of Bedfordshire. In 2019, this research group was awarded funds from The British Psychological Society to host a series of seminars exploring different aspects of digital families. They have published a paper on ‘Sharenting’, with two more papers and an ESRC bid in progress for 20/21.
