Margaret Elizabeth Bahn Tait, MA, MPhil, PhD. Bye-Fellow (Academic Development).
I began my academic life as a linguist and literary historian: I studied Modern and Medieval Languages here at Queens', then took an MPhil in European Literature and worked on East German historical fiction for my PhD. I developed a strong interest in education during my doctoral studies and taught German literature and history for a couple of years, before taking up a University post in what was then the Academic Staff Development Office, where I set up the University's professional development programme for new University lecturers. I now lead on educational development programmes and initiatives with the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning.
