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 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 September 2016, Claire Robertson (Lecturer on MA Fashion Communication at Central Saint Martins) and I will present a paper on ‘How is digital culture influencing your practice?’ at the Designs on eLearning conference in New York City.
In February 2016, Professor Mark Clements (Bioscience lead on Broad Vision) and I presented a paper on Co-creation across spaces of uncertainties: Interdisciplinary research and collaborative learning at the GLAD 2016 conference in Birmingham.
From August until mid October 2015 I was working with a group of seven researchers on the Innovators Grant 2015; a programme funded by Node in Berlin for investigating how thinking and strategies used in the arts can be applied for innovation in other sectors. The Node blog provides a comprehensive account of the project. Currently the team of Innovators is looking into publishing opportunites for some of the outcomes and reflections on the process of collaborating.
