Supervisors: Dr Jennifer Cumming and Dr Victoria Burns
Sam's PhD explores the development of groupwork skills through outdoor team-skill courses, including how these skills are transferred to academic and employment settings. This research also involves designing effective measurement tools and evaluation strategies for investigating course outcomes and skill transfer.
The understanding gained from this research is currently being used to design, implement and evaluate interventions aimed at facilitating the development and transfer of skills during outdoor team-skill courses.
