Lucy Tallents is a conservation biologist with 15 years of experience in collecting and interpreting wildlife data. Her current focus is creating innovative online and face-to-face training in research and monitoring techniques to build the capacity of in-country conservation practitioners.
She is also developing a distance-learning course as an alternative to the residential postgraduate diploma in International Wildlife Conservation Practice, which she created and taught at WildCRU after gaining her doctorate. Recently, her interests have broadened into the pedagogy of skills-based and online learning, and she earned Fellowship of the UK’s Higher Education Academy in 2011. In addition she provides technical assistance in GIS and analysis to post-docs and DPhil students within WildCRU and beyond.
