  • Director of Programmes
  • Programme leader for Sport and Exercise science
  • Link Tutor for THFC programmes
  • Link Tutor for Southgate College Programmes
  • Departmental e-learning coordinator

I have a keen interest on the integration of e-learning into programmes to enhance the student experience and help increase engagement in the subject area and linked achievement of the students. I encourage the use of elearning in the team in a manner which does not replace face-to-face learning sessions, but rather supports them. I am currently researching the use of iPads in learning sessions and trying to measure the effectiveness of these as an elearning tool, as part of my Doctoral research.


My current research interests are:

  • Educational and cultural developments in Sport and Exercise Science
  • The use of performance analysis in fitness, player and tactics assessment in team sports, particulary football.
  • The effects of a variety of non clinical interventions to the treatment of lower back pain.
  • The use of e-learning tools in assessment and feedback on a contemporary SES programme.
