I work at Oxford Brookes university as a Principal Lecturer for the Student Experience with a particular cross-university remit for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). My staff page is here. For the past seven years I have co-ordinated Brookes’ Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (the new staff course). I also contribute substantially to Cranfield University’s version of the same. I have been involved in JISC projects culminating in directing a large support project for the Institutional Innovation Programme. Put simply, I love teaching and I love the Internet – or anyway my vision of what these things might be and together represent. In this blog I explore teaching and the Internet and other – to me – related topics, primarily social, environmental and political, to do with education, economics and global justice. I try to understand why things are the way they are, to discover and share that understanding communally, and then to use that understanding as a guide to shared action, which may be developmental and/or ameliorative on community and personal levels.
I love my sons and their mother even more than teaching and the Internet.
