My teaching approach is student-led and engaged. It grounds theoretical teaching within a broader base of technical skills, creative play and critical consideration of socio-political contexts. In my work I have worked with people from a wide range of abilities, cultural backgrounds and impairments, giving me the skills and knowledge to work with and learn from students, clients and staff no matter what their background or abilities.

I take an inclusive approach to teaching that recognises students’ experience and knowledge as of equal importance to my own and the need to adjust teaching methods and resources to ensure all students have access to learning. As a lecturer I have developed a number of units and degree courses (see my full academic CV) for undergraduate and post-graduaste teaching.

In my role as programme director (2016-2017) of the Digital Media at the University of Central England I developed a number of collaborations with prominent Bristol institutions and smaller SME’s. I have continued these collaborations into my teaching at the University of Bristol’s Centre forInnovation and Entreprenuership where I currently teach.
