Research interests

I have always held a deep-seated interest in the process of learning and the means by which we attain knowledge, master skills, develop attributes and gain richer awareness of the internal and external worlds that we inhabit. For me that may entail insight into the process of learning about a subject or topic, learning through a process or exercise or learning from and about others - all of which I find contributing to the ongoing process of learning about myself. I hold a particular interest in the social contexts in which learning occurs and their influence upon processes of individual self-development. Accordingly, I am interested in ideas surrounding authentic approaches to learning, teaching, assessment and feedback as well as means of supporting learners in engaging in processes of reflective identity development be they within individual, social, professional or personal settings.
