Date: Wednesday 3rd November 2021, 1pm to 2pm
Speaker: Dr Abeer Hassan
Abeer Hassan is Reader in Accounting at UWS Business and Creative industries. She is a leading scholar in the field of Corporate social responsibility and environmental management, Private equity and venture capital as sources of finance for SMEs, Female entrepreneurship, Higher Education, Gender in Accounting Integrated Reporting, Biodiversity and Extinction Accounting.
Her innovative, evidence-based research has appeared in highly regarded outlets. Abeer has published more than 75 articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. Before joining academia, Abeer worked as an auditor for 10 years at the National Authority of Auditing and Performance Evaluation in Egypt.
The doctorate is a huge and complex undertaking which requires a range of support beyond academic foundations. The exchange between official and hidden curriculum is therefore key, not just for achieving the qualification, but to also achieve transformative growth. The “hidden curriculum” highlights the unofficial channels of genuine learning typically acquired by doctoral students independent of the physical and metaphorical walls of academia. It explains in detail how the training and learning process that have taken place during the PhD journey, highly evaluated as genuine pedagogical spaces of learning can be expanded to meet learners’ academic, personal, social, and physiological needs. Abeer Hassan will be sharing how her research is useful in preparing PhD students for the teaching/administration experience and increasing their employability after graduation.
