In 2015/16 I'll be teaching Communicating Philosophy again, in semester 2, and in semester 1 I'm teaching a graduate course in metaphysics. My syllabus is here.
Working with my colleague Andy Fisher, I've published a few papers about issues around pedagogy:
forthcoming. 'Helping Philosophy Students Become (Even More) Employable', Teaching Philosophy
2015. ‘Can teaching philosophy in schools count towards the Research Excellence Framework (UK)?’, Cogent Education
2014. ‘Philosophy students’ uptake, performance and experiences of vivas’, Brookes eJournal for Learning and Teaching, volume 6, issue 1
2012. ‘Multimedia Innovation in the Philosophy of Language’, Brookes eJournal for Learning and Teaching, volume 4, issue 2
Working with colleagues, I've helped promote and develop our Philosophy in Schools programme. You can find out more about the kind of work that we do, here:
I've taught a range of modules including undergraduate and graduate courses in metaphysics and epistemology.
In 2012 I was given a Lord Dearing Award for ‘outstanding achievement…in enhancing the student learning experience’. This was one of twenty awards made across the University.
More recently, I've trialled a module 'Communicating Philosophy', designed to teach philosophy students how to communicate philosophical ideas through a range of different media (lesson plans, posters, digital media, etc.)
