My teaching responsibility lies principally in Business Information Systems and related subject disciplines. In addition, my study of education and how students and adults learn is a specialist area, encompassing technology, eLearning, portfolios and Personal Development Planning.
My research essentially focuses on the eLearning technologies and Personal Development Planning, but has a context within the BIS area. My list of Research publications can be found at GYU.
Continuous liaison with workplace related issues and innovations through a network of contacts established over the past 30 years. Such liaisons and collaborations inform my teaching and inspire change and further development.
I am presently a second year student studying for a PhD – ‘Using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to make Personal Development Planning (PDP) more effective for Undergraduate Information Systems students’. This is a natural extension of my practitioner research to date, and looks into the nature of how students gain self-awareness and insight whilst at university. One of the deliverables that I am seeking to develop will be a model for teaching that incorporates CBT effectively, ensuring that the definition of successful learning is embedded through Personal Development Planning as a part of the University curriculum.
