Welcome to my website. The content offers insights into my experiences as educator in the creative arts and my research into the creative process, collective learning, interdisciplinarity, learning environments and students as co-creators.
My research has been published widely, most recently the collaboratively produced case study Looking: Thinking: Making with Claire Robertson, and the co-authored chapter Promoting Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Learning via Migration between different Learning Spaces with John R. A. Smith in an international anthology on Learning Space Design in Higher Education.
In March 2018, I was invited to deliver a keynote for the annual Learning and Teaching Conference at the University of the Arts London. The theme of the day was Teaching in the disciplines: connections, disconnections and contestations; my response: Making at the edges: borders as zones of enquiry.

In July 2018, we had our final meeting with the European Academy of Participation at Friche la Belle de Mai in Marseille, France, and I am currently searching for words to recount this amazing, challenging yet rewarding intercultural venture.
I will be moderating the Open Space at the forthcoming 15th ELIA Biennal Conference in Rotterdam: Resilience and the City: Art, Education, Urbanism. Hosted at Codarts University of the Arts and Willem de Kooning Academy / Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. Maybe see you there!
