Supervisory Interests

My doctorate is in online learning and I continue to develop work in this area of the impact of digital learning technologies on learning design and community building in HE and organisational contexts. I currently supervise 5 PhD students at Brighton in related fields of social media and education, women and leadership, digital divide and the impact of dyslexia on learning in innovative SMEs. I have supervised three successful completions of PhD thesis, one in the field of women's learning environments in Saudi Arabian HE, the other the use of school teachers' acceptance and use of e-learning technologies. 

In summary, the fields of supervisory interest are:

Online and blended learning design in HE and in organisational contexts

Social media in relation to learning and community-building

Human Resource Development

Problem-based learning

Action learning

Graduate employability

Approach to teaching

Central to my approach to teaching is the building of bridges from the learner's experience towards areas of expertise they wish to develop. My experience in Higher Education has spanned the teaching of undergraduates in every year of study, taught postgraduates and the support of doctoral students and mentoring of academic staff. During the last two decades I have worked alone and in teaching teams to construct learning with students in various diverse business fields including HRM, Business Strategy, Research Methodology and Learning and Development. I have led postgraduate studies and designed new modules and full undergraduate courses based on problem-based/enquiry-based and experiential learning.
