I am field leader for Media Technology courses, including Computer Graphics Technology BSc and Creative Technology BSc. I have taught a range of modules from Fundamentals of Computer Imagery, Digital Motion Graphics, Digital Compositing, Multimedia, Visual Effects and Professional Practice at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Prior to entering full time HE, I had worked in industry for over fifteen years with technology based companies such Silicon Graphics, Avid Technologies, and Quantel as consultant and trainer and also various media, television and design companies such as Carlton Communications, Pearl and Dean and E-District Plc.
My main interests and research include the digital media, visual arts and technology enhanced learning.
Digital Media: Past research had led to participation in the formation of Digital Media Kingston (DMK). Present research has led to Skillset UK wide VFX course development in HE.
Technology Enhanced Learning: Early research into ‘Blended Learning' led me to membership of Kingston Universities ADC and R3 research group as well as ad hoc areas such as science and children's reasoning (www.ioe.ac.uk/study/departments/phd/5371.html). Lately this has developed into more focused aspects of learning in a digital environment such as peer instruction in small cohorts and digital assessment.
