For me teaching is storytelling . I introduce students to a world of unknown characters and scripts, to the 'sociological imagination'. I encourage them to engage reflectively and playfully with this world, to learn the language, think through the concepts and develop insights that re/frame their practice. Innovation and Leadership I have a record of research based innovation and leadership in my teaching. This is reflected in modular re/design and the development of market relevant cross collaborative programmes that cater to the needs of part and full-time students within a framework of structured student support and international contributions.
