Helen Coleman MSc, PGCE, PG Cert, BA (Hons) Helen Coleman gained her first degree at Durham University in 1999, in Research and Language, Postgraduate Certificate in Research at Teesside University in 2005, Master of Science in Research, at Teesside University in 2006 and her PGCE at Glyndwr University in 2011. Helen started lecturing at the University of Chester and moved to Glyndwr University in 2010. She is currently a Senior Lecturer of Research Design, Methods and Statistics across the whole of Glyndwr University, including Business, Computing, Consumer Psychology, Education, Early Childhood Practice, Childhood, Education and Welfare, Nursing, Equine Science and Welfare, Wildlife and Plant Biology, Animal Science, and Animal Studies. Helen strongly believes being part of a university, whether staff or student, is knowing you are in an inclusive community where you should be free to learn and progress while being challenged and empowered, in a physically and mentally safe and healthy environment. As such, Helen is a Dignity at Work Advisor at Glyndwr University, in addition to being a Time to Change Workplace Champion. Helen has supported and enabled the university to strengthen its policies and procedures, as recently recognised at the Glyndwr University Above and Beyond Staff Awards 2018, when she was awarded the first ever Glyndwr University Vice Chancellor's Award for her courageous and pioneering work in Education. As a keen researcher, Helen's research interests are varied. Helen's research is directed by her role as a Senior Lecturer (Teaching and Scholarship) and so she is concentrating on innovative ways of teaching research methods. Helen is a STEM Ambassador, Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, Member of the International Statistical Institute, and Member of the International Association for Statistical Education, Member of the British Psychological Society and Associate Member of the Association for Learning Technology.

Reviews for Polish Your Academic Writing

I wish I'd had this book when I first started my degree, it has good advice and underlines what is needed to write academically, I will be suggesting this book to others and will be using it in future endeavours. -- Fiona Edwards
