Following graduation with a BVSc from The University of Sydney, Ingrid has maintained clinical work as a veterinarian for over 25 years. An interest in educational pedagogy encouraged Ingrid to complete a Graduate Diploma in Education (Science) and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Ingrid then joined the vocational training sector in 2008 and continues to teach Veterinary Nursing and Animal Studies. Due to an ongoing interest in educational practice, Ingrid returned to The University of Sydney to research teaching experiences in the clinical environment and completed a Master of Veterinary Science in 2015. In 2016, Ingrid joined the staff at The University of Sydney to teach veterinary science students in the area of Professional Practice. In 2018 Ingrid completed a Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies (Higher Education) at The University of Sydney which will lead to Fellowship of the UK Higher Education Academy (FHEA). Research and teaching interests include effective teaching strategies particularly clinical communication skills, use of clinical skills laboratories in veterinary science education and resilience in the veterinary profession.
