In my own teaching, as Professor of Phonetics, I am keen to provide a supportive and stimulating environment for my students, where they feel safe to ask questions and construct their own knowledge. I teach not only in phonetics, but branch outer into wider subjects such as clinical linguistics, and research writing skills. I am a keen user of new educational technologies, and have pioneered initiatives such as student response system handsets and virtual learning environments. As Associate Dean for Education Excellence and Innovation, in the School of Health Sciences at City University London, from 2014-2021, I aimed to promote and reward teaching excellence. I am a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and have been lucky enough to receive numerous awards for my teaching including an NTFS award. You can follow me on Twitter @r_a_knight.
