Dr Amy Wong is a Lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Queen’s University Belfast. She has international experience in supporting students and educators in higher education. Amy completed her PhD study at The University of Queensland in Australia in 2019. Her PhD research explored the factors that influence examiner judgements of student performance and the effectiveness of providing examiners with feedback in a case study of competency-based assessment in medical education.

Amy has also trained as a secondary school teacher in special needs education. Her experience of supporting young people with special needs and their families made her realise the importance of co-constructing meaningful and relevant experience of evidence-based interventions to maximise success in every student’s personal and educational development.

Amy’s research focuses on promoting active engagement with evidence-informed teaching, learning and assessment practices. Her methodological expertise covers both quantitative and qualitative analyses. Amy also has broad experience in using co-design methodology to develop resources to support academic and clinical (practice) educators to make evidence-informed teaching, learning and assessment decisions. Her research interests include assessment, student support, faculty development, digital literacy and learning analytics.
