I frequently lecture, teach, and run workshops on documentary photography, photojournalism and related topics.
I am lecturer in photojournalism and documentary photography at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London where I teach across the MA and BA courses. I also teach on the college’s innovative part-time MA in photojournalism and documentary photography, a programme which is conducted entirely online and brings student groups scattered across the globe together in a virtual classroom. I am a visiting tutor at other universities around the United Kingdom and abroad and have given talks, tutorials, and workshops at institutions including the University of South Wales, University of Westminster, University of Coventry, University of Plymouth, Goldsmiths, University of London, and the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.
I have taught on the Magnum Photos summer school, and I am a tutor on Autograph ABP’s Album Project, an extra-curricular course for 16 to 18 year-old Londoners and which explores notions of community, memory, and social and cultural identity. I also teach at the School of Punktum, an alternative photography school established by Ed Thompson and conceived as a low-cost alternative to photography higher education. I have also taught photography to school and community groups, from secondary school level to adult, across a wide range of ability levels and settings including in a prison. I have a Postgraduate Certificate Academic Practice in Art, Design and Communication, I am an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy, have a 2018 Disclosure and Barring Service check and I am a qualified first aider.
My pedagogic interests include the development of ‘speculative pedagogies’. This is a practice which combines aspects of speculative design and critical pedagogy in order to help students and teachers imagine and engineer better alternatives to current educational practices. I am also interested in online learning technologies, and the impact that physical and virtual teaching spaces have on the dynamics of learning.
