Dr Carol Moxam

Director of The Children’s Speech and Language Clinic in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences

What area does your research focus on?

My research focuses on: promoting the learning outcomes for early years, primary & secondary pupils who struggle to access teaching and learning within educational contexts; promoting verbal and written language communication skills to promote access to teaching and learning for the vulnerable learner, and enhance life chances of these individuals; curriculum development; and the student learning experience.

What are the other key aspects of your role?

Other key aspects of my role include: Pastoral support for UG and PGT students. Engagement with the wider health and education communities to promote links between HEIs and communities they serve. Interprofessional teaching and learning, for example, promoting teaching and learning opportunities for students across professional domains such as student teachers, psychologists, dieticians, and speech & language therapists.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I like to spend quality time with my family and friends, sharing a night out eating, drinking or dancing; hosting dinner parties and games nights; reading that allows my brain to relax away from the academic arena; and travelling.

What do you think you could particularly offer mentoring support with?

I would offer any potential mentee support in three key areas. Firstly, support with navigating the academic arena, particularly those from non-traditional backgrounds or those who are the first in their family to attend university. Secondly, providing a psychologically safe space with unconditional positive regard to allow the mentee to share their experiences and ambitions. Finally, making use of my two ears and one mouth to ensure I listen more and talk less.
