I’ve been teaching in higher education for a decade, which includes journalism (theory and practice) and new media (2008-2014). At Bournemouth University(2014-date), I teach across a spectrum of degree programmes in politics, media and communication practice. I’m an award-winning specialist in social justice pedagogy, critical race pedagogy and inclusive teaching practice – and I developed the 3D Pedagogy Framework to decolonise, democratise and diversify the curriculum in higher education.
