Julie Raby

MPhil, Diploma in Management, Master of Education Leadership and Management

MA Renaissance Literature with distinction, BA (Hons) English/History of Art, BA Arts.

 

I took up the role of senior lecturer in August 2016, after taking on several Principal Lecturer and leadership roles, and I now focus on my research and my teaching.   

Prior to moving to a Senior Lecturer role, I have been involved in many strategic developments at York St John University.  I worked as Head of Department: Humanities, Deputy Dean in the Faculty of Arts (Student Experience) and Principal Lecturer with responsibility for quality in the School of Management, Community and Communication (now York Business School).  As Principal Lecturer with a responsibility for the University’s Joint Honours programmes, I introduced new subject pairings and established a format for delivery which still underpins the Joint Honours awards today. 

During my time as Head of Department, I oversaw the introduction of new programmes in Creative Writing, Geography, War Studies and American Studies.

I am interested in Digital Learning and I have developed Distance Learning modules for students who are studying abroad for a semester.  I approach teaching as a blend combining classroom based activities with field trips and online learning.
