A member of the 3D Design lecturing team since 2009 I teach primarily 1st year and 4th year students, teaching both physical and digital subjects. Outside of teaching I have worked to develop and expand the Digital Fabrication Room with the aim of facilitating a teaching and learning space that that supports innovation and technical excellence.
My research is concerned with the intelligence of the hand, specifically in the context of Art and Design Education.
|The careful hand: Heidegger and manual knowledge.
|Learning by Stealth: Digitally-Mediated Informal Learning
|Words in practice: SFL, semantic waves and the role of language in the studio.
|Do psychological theories of motivation support the use of pass/fail grading systems with 3rd level students as a means to enhance learning?
