In 2007 Dr Magne became an Associate Professor in Educational Development and the Programme Director of the University’s Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (@PlymUni).
As well as being described as an ‘outstanding’ pastoral tutor to students, she has also been nominated for the SSTAR Awards (Student, Staff, Teaching and Representation) led by the University of Plymouth Students’ Union, for giving effective feedback and commended by external examiners for the provision of high quality, innovative academic development programmes.
Dr Magne has trained and mentored over 1,200 academics in the UK and abroad and provided development and guidance for experienced academic teams to enhance the teaching, learning and assessment experience for students in Higher Education.
Her research concentrates on assessment and feedback, inclusive practice, transnational education and internationalisation. Dr Magne’s interest in global education has inspired self-funded sabbaticals to teach children in rural Kenya and abandoned or orphaned ‘street kids’ in urban India.
