Dr Martina Johnson is a Senior Teaching Fellow in Faculty Development within Medical Education.

Martina's background is in psychology with cognitive science and she very early on became interested in how we learn. Martina took that interest further and carried out research on whether we can learn a complex set of rules unconsciously (implicitly) and what things affect this learning. After completing her PhD, Martina taught English as a foreign language abroad for a short time but soon returned to the UK to work in the field of educational development, first at Bournemouth University and then at the University of Southampton.

Martina worked within the Professional Development Unit (PDU) and later the Institute for Learning Innovation and Development (ILIaD) on the Postgraduate Certificate of Academic Practice (PGCAP) course and Professional Recognition of Educator Practice (PREP) framework. She also managed the programme of professional development activities for academic staff across the University. Martina has also worked as a consultant for the Ordnance Survey Research and Development team, advising on questionnaire design and evaluation, and artificial language learning and categorisation.

Martina joined Medical Education in July 2016 as Senior Teaching Fellow Faculty Development where her focus is on supporting educators in the early years of the BM curriculum. She also looks after and develops MEDUSA, the “Medical Education Development Unit Staff Development Access”, which is the portal for online staff development.
