My academic role includes the design and delivery of modules in Education Studies around the use of technology in teaching and learning. I led on the design of a series of modules listed in the JISC Exemplar Case Studies for Higher Education with a focus on TEL and student engagement. My research interests include Deleuzo-Guattarian approaches to education, Popular Education, Critical Theory, technology and community engagement, Action Research and online/ blended learning. Developing student focused activities and experiential approaches to academic work inform my pedagogy with a particular focus on emergent learning theories. I teach research modules and supervise dissertations at Level 5 and 6 on the Education Studies programme and on the Coaching & Mentoring degree at UCBC. I have previous experience in management and lectureships in Adult Literacy and Teacher Training.
My current research includes the development of the Community Open Online Courses (COOCs) platform that explores the ways web based technologies can shape new approaches to learning in, and beyond, institutions.
