Chris Hand joined the School of Education at the University of Glasgow in July 2021 as Senior Lecturer in Psychology.
He has extensive experience of designing and delivering teaching, learning, and assessment activities, of quality assurance practices, and of leadership in Higher Education. He have supervised multiple Ph.D. students through successful completion, and countless M.Sc. student research projects. His research interests involve the application of key psychological theories and concepts to applied, real-world challenges, including in education. His applied psychology research background aligns with his interests in adult and lifelong learning, particularly in terms of language, online impression formation, and digital technology.
- Cyberabuse: Victim-blaming, perceived incident severity, and observer characteristics.
- Emoji: the interplay between written language and emoji / digital faces - perceptions of message/text, emoji, sender characteristics.
- Psycholinguistics: the role of context in written language processing and its interplay with other variables; bi- and multi-lingual processors of language.
- Cognition: the impact of trauma on memory and cognition, including the effects of alcohol pre-, peri-, and post-trauma [n.b., this includes the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as a trauma event]
- Scholarship: assessment and feedback practices; peer-assisted student support; widening access and participation; digital learning technologies
