Student employability enhancement through fieldwork: purposefully integrated or a beneficial side effect? (2023)
Journal Article
Peasland, E. L., Scott, G. W., Morrell, L. J., & Henri, D. C. (in press). Student employability enhancement through fieldwork: purposefully integrated or a beneficial side effect?. Journal of geography in higher education, https://doi.org/10.1080/03098265.2023.2267459

Fieldwork provides opportunities for students to develop employability-enhancing transferable skills as well as technical, discipline-specific skills and disciplinary knowledge. However, the extent to which staff purposely plan transferable skills ou... Read More about Student employability enhancement through fieldwork: purposefully integrated or a beneficial side effect?.

Building a competence-based model for the academic development of programme leaders (2023)
Journal Article
Lawrence, J., Morrell, L. J., & Scott, G. W. (2023). Building a competence-based model for the academic development of programme leaders. International Journal for Academic Development, https://doi.org/10.1080/1360144X.2023.2166942

The programme leader is crucial to the success of a higher education provider’s educational portfolio. However, programme leader development is under-researched and is too often conceptualised in a negative way, as the solution to a problem. Here we...

Water Resources Research, 56(6), Article e2018WR024196. https://doi.org/10.1029/2018WR024196

Natural hydrological regimes encompass varying seasonal flow characteristics that provide fish with cues and opportunities for upstream spawning migrations, but these flows are often modified/absent in regulated rivers. Compensatory artificial flows... Read More about The Response of River-Resident Fish to Reservoir Freshet Releases of Varying Profiles Intended to Facilitate a Spawning Migration.
