I am Senior Academic Coordinator at the Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies (LLAS), based at the University of Southampton. This is my personal website where I share my own thoughts on matters relating to teaching and learning in higher education.
I am particularly interested in methods for pedagogic research, interdisciplinarity and identity issues surrounding educational development. Over the past year I have become increasingly interested in the use of social networking tools for educational development and am learning about how good use might be made of these tools.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA).
Outside work I attend Above Bar Church in Southampton, enjoy cycling to work and gardening. I live in Southampton with my wife Michelle and two young sons, Samuel and Elijah.
