I am Head of the School of Education at Liverpool Hope University. My main research interests and writings are located within the following areas: cross-cultural learning contexts and the development of the learner within higher education settings; the use of qualitative methodologies in educational research; the development of higher education policy and its impact on student experience and academic practice; and the uses of emergent technologies in learning and teaching. The prime focus of my current research and scholarship is academic practice and development in higher education. I teach on both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and supervise undergraduate final year research projects (BA), and postgraduate dissertations (MA, EdD and PhD). I welcome student research proposals in the areas outlined above.
