Emily Nordmann

Emily Nordmann is a lecturer in the School of Psychology, University of Glasgow, UK. Emily’s main area of pedagogical research is lecture capture and how it impacts learning although her discipline research deals with psycholinguistics, in particular idiomatic expressions and swearing. Previously she was a Lecturer (Scholarship) in the School of Psychology, University of Aberdeen. During her career, Emily has centred the development of her teaching activities on the application of eLearning tools and now conducts pedagogical research with a focus on the use of lecture capture in higher education. Her empirical work on lecture capture, attendance, and academic performance can be found here and a recent pre-print on practical recommendations for lecturers and students using lecture capture can be found here.
