Dr Erika Corradini is Senior Teaching Fellow in Academic Development in the Centre for Higher Education Practice (CHEP)

Erika’s background is in education and staff development in the areas of languages and linguistics. After completing her PhD in English, Erika worked as lecturer in Humanities and later moved into education development and staff support.
