Teaching

I teach on a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses covering the areas of digital marketing, socio-technical approaches to information systems and innovation. I try to bring my classes to life by drawing on real-world examples to illustrate the more conceptual aspects of my teaching. When I was a student I always found classes were more interesting when I could relate the theory to my own experiences. My experience of teaching at the University of Brighton has shown me this approach seems to resonate with students.

I like to challenge my students to look behind the computing technologies we use in our personal and working lives and really think about where they came from and the forces which shape how innovation and technological change occur. I really enjoy seeing students engage with the teaching materials I use in class and watching them develop their critical thinking skills.
