Biography

Suzy is the first member of staff to be awarded an Emeritus Fellowship of the University. In her previous role as a Principal Lecturer she taught at both undergraduate and masters' level within the Business School in the areas of Professional Ethics, Creative Environment and Digital Design. She was Head of Subject for the Computing programmes between 2008-2011. From 2011-2016 she was a member of the Business School Executive Team and responsible for Learning & Teaching strategies. As well as her teaching duties, she received major funding for a project involving the commercialisation of a 3D animated online game to teach Business Ethics. The tool is designed to help "move the needle" of business ethics by inspiring ethical intelligence in the next generation. This ethics game is used by universities nationally and internationally.

Her PhD evaluated different learning methods used in HE and examined their pedagogic impact in relation to the teaching of professional ethics. Her work as an innovative practitioner was recognised in 2004 with the award of a University Teaching Fellowship and in 2016 was awarded a Senior Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy.

Suzy's research spans discipline-specific journals as well as learning and teaching based publications. She believes that solid, workable learning and teaching initiatives can only be delivered if founded on research-based practice. Suzy is passionate in her belief that ethics is a subject which should be taught throughout the business curriculum within the different subject areas. Her work in the area of moral development highlights the importance of engaging with students in the area of ethics to promote personal values and integrity. As a result of her efforts, in 2012 the Business School became a member of the Principles of Responsible Management Initiative, and she championed the successful adoption of Business Ethics as a compulsory module on the undergraduate Business Programmes. She is a reviewer for the Journal of Business Ethics; Innovations in Education Teaching International; Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society, Journal of Management Education, International Journal of Management Education; and the AOM Annual General Meeting. She has been a panel member on Industry Stakeholder Boards to evaluate industry ethical practice and a consultant for companies wishing to improve and develop more interactive ethics and compliance courses.
