Rachel Penny

Dr Rachel Penny is the director of teaching for psychology and counselling at The Open University. Rachel has been passionate about psychology since she studied it as an undergraduate; she went on to complete a PhD exploring children’s understanding of nationality. Rachel joined the OU as a tutor in 2004 and has since taught on a range of Level 1 and 2 social science and psychology modules. Helping students to develop study skills alongside their subject knowledge and to balance their studies with other areas of their lives is of key importance to her role. Outside of work, Rachel enjoys running with the family dog and exercising her creative impulses with some relaxing crochet!
