Current Academic Teaching
I teach modules that are part of four different degrees in the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion at Birmingham: BA Theology and Religion, BA in Philosophy, Religion and Ethics, BA in History and Theology, BA in Politics, Religion and Philosophy.
Modules I’ll be teaching at Birmingham for the current academic year (2016-17) include:
I’ll have a dedicated website for each of these courses up in due course. Check back here for more in mid-September!
During my Post-Doc in Edinburgh (2013-2016), I taught on a range of courses:
- Global Ethical and Social Issues (co-taught), June 2016
- Economy, Ethics & Religion (co-taught), 2015
- Ecology, Ethics, & Spirit (co-taught), 2014
- Ethics & Society (Core Christian Ethics Course, co-taught) 2014, 2013
Note: this course was the subject of a two-year PTAS funded research project (link 1, 2, 3) investigating the use of blogs in teaching. Published findings from our first year are listed in Publications. I’ve also written a blog post about the mechanics of setting up these sites.
- Technology, Religion and Ethics (co-taught), 2013
- Religion, Violence and Peacebuilding (lecturer), 2012
…and before beginning academic training, I worked in Information Technology and Telecommunications and for my last two years in that capacity I worked as a trainer. I continue to work as a clinician on technology, with a particular interest in the use of technology in learning.
