About me

Naomi Klein's comment has stuck with me about re-newing our hopes for the coming year:

Arundhati Roy's piece about how "the pandemic is a portal" and we must choose what we carry with us is, I thinkour moment's most resonant image. When this endswe will not be going back to where we were beforeWe are going through something transformative and it will take us somewhere new—it could be a lot worse.


Teaching: From collaborating with others, I have designed and facilitated modules in enterprise and entrepreneurship.

We take an experiential approach and focus on societal challenges (Bristol Going for Gold - Bristol Bites Back Better). Taking such an approach builds on co-creation of entrepreneurial identity - enabling students in their entrepreneurial identity work - and encouraging them to Take Action. And, that such an approach to practicing entrepreneurship requires 'imagination and wondering and a commitment to making a difference'. 


Using design thinking (& doing), we introduce students to tools used in organizational/entrepreneurial processes and practices. To do so, I am a certified facilitator of Lego® Serious Play® Methods and Materials to introduce students to communication tools using bricks to help enable them to listen, collaborate with others and to become more able to see differing views - be inclusive and respectful. And, to have fun, to share stories, and to build things together.

As part of my continual learning, I recently completed and hold a certifcate for The Hidden Code Revealed 2020 - an on-line course designed for educators, lecturers and professors. This helps me to improve my on-line practices. It draws on multiple schools of thought that informs skills in enhancing student engagement, story-telling, and active learning.  

Research: My interest and curiosity in how an experiential-based approach can be critical remains central to the above teaching and to my research practices.
