Hello. Welcome to my staff profile.
I enjoy teaching higher education and engage with undergraduate students at each level across a variety of disciplines applied in digital media.
At level one I lead the foundational drawing and illustration unit, Illustration & Visualisation.
At level two I lead a unit called Digital Communication Management, which provides a very useful introduction to working with the internet and social media.
At level three I coordinate the award-winning capstone work experience units, Collaborative Digital Media Project Part A and Part B. Over two terms student teams work pro-bono producing all sorts of challenging digital media projects mostly for not-for-profit organisations. This coordination also involves soliciting the project challenges to be undertaken each year.
I also have a record of successful research higher degree supervision spanning 15 years including an award-winning candidature.
