I have recently been awarded a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA) in recognition of my work on integrating technology to enhance online and face to face learning experiences.

My experience in the fields of educational, web and search technologies provides me a broad range of modules on which I can focus my knowledge. It is imperative that we work to promote students’ awareness to the way web-based education systems and information systems work in order that they are properly equipped to utilise these resources effectively in the workplace.

I teach primarily though lectures, led practical sessions and tutorials though more frequently these sessions are taught in a non-traditional manner in order to enhance the learning experience. I also supervise projects and dissertations in educational informatics and greatly enjoy these experiences that often result in interesting and exciting new avenues of research.

I coordinate or teach on many of the modules available here at the Information School:

  • INF203: Digital Storytelling
  • INF6012: Designing Usable Websites
  • INF6019: Digital Multimedia Libraries
  • INF6901: Digital Literacy Skills
  • INF109: Digital Media and Society
