Teaching and Learning Innovation


h-index and i-10 index reasonably healthy

My research has generally focused on whether or not any particular educational intervention has been effective. This approach - which follows from a very pragmatic orientation towards the reality of the educational space - has played out in a number of ways.

First, I've published around curriculum and course developments aimed at enhancing teaching and learning. I've also published in the area of delivering professional development for teaching staff. Finally, I've been involved in large scale research projects resulting in multiple collaborative publications.

One day I'd like to find my way back to my beginnings in philosophy. This would entail looking at "lanaugage games" and, more particularly, at the ways in which different communities justify their claims to truth. For example, how do scientists justify their claims to truth as compared with members of a religious community?
