Personal profile

Scholarly biography

Before coming to the University of Brighton, I studied design at St Martins School of Art, gained an MA in the History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, and taught art history for many years at various institutions including the Open University.  At Brighton, I developed and led the new BA (Hons) Visual Culture. I then led the national staff development strand for the Subject Centre in Art Design & Communication, before joining the Centre for Learning & Teaching (now L&T Hub) in 2001.

Since then I have led a variety of university-wide projects to develop policy and resources to support inclusive practice, personal tutoring and education for sustainable development. At various times I have led the PgCert in Academic Practice (PGCAP) and the Course Leaders programme.  From 2005-10 I was involved in all three of the University's HEFCE Centres of Excellence in Teaching & Learning - the CETL in Design, Inqbate Creativity Centre, and LearnHigher - a collaboration between 16 universities in which I led the Visual Practices area, a specialism I maintain through the Visual Learning website and offering workshops on visual research methods.  

Now semi-retired, I continue to teach on the PGCAP and run the short CPD programme Supervising Student Dissertations. I also have responsibility for developing and maintaining the online resources to support personal academic tutoring and have recently taken on a new role as L&T Hub Partner for the School of Humanities & Social Sciences.
