Dr Daniel Bishop
Senior Lecturer in Psychology

Heinz Wolff 203


I hold a City and Guilds 7407 Certificate (Stage 1) in Further Education. I was the first member of academic staff to complete the Professional Development in Academic Practice here at Brunel; I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have conducted research to examine the quality of visually impaired students’ experience at the University, attracting HEFCE-allocated funding (£19.3K) in doing so. Accordingly, I completed a project funded by the Brunel Educational Excellence Centre, which illustrates the benefit of visual guidance for learning from short vodcasts; this complements my ongoing research (see Research) and is the epitome of research-led teaching that we continually strive to deliver at Brunel.

I lead the Individual Differences in Sport and Exercise module, which is compulsory for students on our flagship Sport and Exercise Psychology MSc programme, and a popular option for those on our Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences MSc. I also contribute to delivery of these masters modules:

  • SP5530: Dissertation
  • SP5535: Social Processes in Sport and Exercise
  • SP5601: Physical Activity and Health
  • PY5619: Cognitive Rehabilitation and Neuroplasticity

I lead the undergraduate module SP2606: The Psychology of Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity: Theory and Application and deliver on these undergraduate modules:

  • SP1600: Introduction to the Psychology of Sport and Exercise
  • SP2555: Placement Module
  • SP3706: Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology
  • SP3603: Individual Project
