I am currently a sessional lecturer at the University of Sydney.
My subject areas have primarily been focused on professional development, and interdisciplinary learning at an undergraduate tertiary level. This has included the scaffolding of professional placement experiences through carefully designed workshop activities, and leading small group work from multiple disciplines towards a project outcome. Within the composition faculty, I have taught music notation skills and desktop publishing, which presented the interesting challenge of making the importance of beaming compelling.
