I have 20 years of lecturing experience and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am Programme Leader of the FdA Art & Design at Coleg Menai in Bangor, Wales. I teach undergraduates creative design and contextual studies. My pedagogy focuses on experiential learning and the interdisciplinary nature of art, utilizing the design process as a tool for learning. Influenced by Gestalt philosophies, my teaching acknowledges the individual student. Ideas are explored in constructively critical contexts and tested in ‘real world’ settings, with direct links to industry.
