Maxine Lintern Birmingham City University, UK
Prof. Maxine Lintern is Associate Dean for Research and Enterprise for the Faculty of Business, Law and Social Science at Birmingham City University, UK. Her background is in biochemistry and neurophysiology and she has always been profoundly interested in the links and interfaces between research and teaching. The research strategy she has developed for the Faculty overtly links all research activity back into the development of innovative teaching environments and the curriculum. While based in the Faculty of Health she established a successful research centre and created innovative learning experiences such as the ‘Major Incident Simulation’. Prior to her roles at BCU she was Director of Learning and Teaching at the University of Birmingham where she worked closely with staff from a wide range of subject areas as they undertook formal training in teaching as part of their PGCert. The challenge of helping them to see links back to their own research environment and how that could inspire educational development is one of drivers for producing this book. Maxine is a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
