Teaching

“KNOWLEDGE COMES BY TAKING THINGS APART: ANALYSIS. BUT WISDOM COMES BY PUTTING THINGS TOGETHER.”

“PRAXIS IS THE PROCESS BY WHICH A THEORY, LESSON, OR SKILL IS ENACTED, PRACTICED, EMBODIED, OR REALISED.”

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Media at Manchester School of Art where I lead on digital, new media, interactive and immersive media areas across the media department degrees. I am currently also the curriculum development lead for the £30 million international screen school project, that will launch in 2021 with a tranformational approach to learning and research in convergent media, storytelling and digital technology.

I have previously taught across theory and practice at Coventry School of Art and Design on the Digital Media and Culture MA and the Media Production BA . During my time at Coventry I also developed a BA degree in Digital Media.

In the past I have also been involved with online mentoring on the Raindance Postgraduate Degree in Film, accredited by Staffordshire University, as well as being an invited lecturer to the Global Media and Communication Programme at the Centre for Cultural Policy Studies, Warwick University. I have also lectured at Zhejiang University of Media and Communications in China, the University of Ibadan in Nigeria and Stellenbosch University in South Africa as well as being involved in learning projects for BBC Blast and a number of schools of in the West Midlands region.
