I have an unwavering belief in the value of life-long learning and education has and always will be a central part of what I do.
A snapshot of my educational experience can be found below. If you’d like to get in touch to talk about arranging either a one-off workshop or seminar or an ongoing arrangement then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Higher Education Teaching
Since undertaking my PhD, I have taught in Higher Education Institutions including the University of Exeter, University of Plymouth and University of Gloucestershire.
This has included leading weekly seminars on core modules including Pretexts and Contexts of Drama, Theatrical Interpretations: Practitioners and Performance and Interpretation.
My focus has primarily been on introducing students to theoretical approaches from theatre studies as well as literary and cultural theory including Semiotics, Phenomenology, Cultural Materialism, Feminist Criticism and Postcolonialism.
As well as supervising students’ developing of essays for survey modules such as the above, I have also led one-off workshops on Research Skills and Planning a Research Project for students preparing to write their dissertations.
I have also planned and let Widening Participation workshops as part of the Future Quest programme which works with young people with the potential to study at University level in Bristol.
I have ten-years of experience leading theatre and arts workshops with children, young people and community groups.
I have led workshops for arts organisations including Theatre Royal Plymouth, Bristol Old Vic, Pauline Quirk Academy and the Real Ideas Organisation.
This has included working in dedicated rehearsal studio environments as well as in schools and community spaces and a great deal of leading targeted groups such as those aimed at young people with different needs, refugees and asylum seekers and adults at risk of social exclusion.
