Research summary > [Click to expand]

I am an independent consultant and researcher working in Education and the Cultural and Creative Industries. I have worked as an Associate Research Professor at the University of South Australia, where I developed a city-wide initiative to develop new kinds of spaces for learning. I am currently working on research projects in London and Oslo exploring learning and learner identity across formal and informal domains. I have been the Head of Media Arts and Education at WAC Performing Arts and Media College, London - a centre for informal training and education - where I directed a range of digital media activities for young people and co-ordinated training for media artists and teachers. I worked as a Media Studies teacher in an inner city comprehensive and in higher education teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses, leading teacher training degrees in media education. I have researched and written widely on many aspects of media education, new technologies and informal learning. I have directed research projects for the Arts Council of England, the British Film Institute, the London Development Agency and Creative Partnerships and have spoken at a number of conferences around the world.
