Dr Anna McGregor
After degrees at Wellesley College, St Andrews, Glasgow, and Duke, I am now a lecturer at the University of Glasgow. My postgraduate training was in marine mammal biology, and my research focuses on animal communication in aquatic and riparian habitats and the use of soundscapes to assess habitat quality. I have pedagogical interests in the applications of technology to enhancing the student learning experience through active learning and improving inclusivity through supporting student employability.
I am inspired by the constantly evolving field of new learning technologies and their potential to augment the traditional university experience while also reaching a wider and more diverse community of learners.
