Dr Nenadi Adamu

Lecturer in Health and Social Care and Course Coordinator for Health and Social Care

Nenadi Adamu

I joined the University of Bedfordshire as a research student in 2012, and submitted my thesis on Young People in the Informal Economy in 2016.

I have been lecturing in a variety of subject areas since 2015 and my overall approach to teaching and learning is student-centered, placing high emphasis on the role of the students in enhancing their own learning.

I am an Associate Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy, and I am currently part of the team delivering the Health and Social Care degree at the London School of Commerce Campus.
