    Education & Teaching Experience

    Dr Alghrani has extensive teaching experience at both postgraduate (PG) and undergraduate (UG) level. She has taught on both core modules (Tort, Criminal law and English Legal Systems) and led on large optional modules such as Medical Law & Ethics and Family Law. She has designed new modules which have proved to be very popular with students ( eg Medicine, Law and Ethics II (UG) and Children, Medicine and Law (PG)).

    In the current year (2017-2018), Dr Alghrani was Module Leader of three modules: Medicine Law and Ethics I ( a year three UG optional module) and on the LLM programme, Medico Legal Problems and Children Medicine and Law. She also delivered lectures on the Healthcare Decision Making and Reproductive Justice modules.

    Dr Alghrani has a sustained record of innovative practice in the design and delivery of teaching and learning. This is evidenced in the two teaching awards she has been received from both the University and the students via the Guild. This is also mirrored in the very high levels of attainment students in those modules receive and her consistently high (Evasys) feedback scores.

    Dr Alghrani in her positions as SLSJ Associate Dean (Education), Faculty Education Committee member and SLSJ Chair of Board of Studies plays a leading contribution to shaping teaching policy and practice within the University. Dr Alghrani is also a member of the Faculty Progress Board and University Disciplinary Committee. As demonstrated by these roles, Amel is committed to improving and promoting the learning and teaching experience and is a firm and enthusiastic believer in the transformative impact that education plays.

    Amel also chairs the School Teaching Development Fund Committee which funds projects or developments designed to improve the teaching and learning experience.

    She is currently a teaching mentor, acting as a role model and offering peer review and feedback to younger colleagues to help develop their teaching practice.
