Projects per year
My research interests revolve around the relationship between project complexity, project management methodologies and the management of resources pertaining to “integrated delivery” in project environments. Within this theme I am currently supervising PhD projects addressing issues of process innovation, including BIM maturity assessment tools, knowledge sharing, value benchmarking, sustainable construction management practices and end-of-life component management.
I also have a research interest in teaching and learning innovations which has naturally evolved from managing distance and flexible learning programmes and the need to develop innovative methods of delivery. I has a particular passion for exploring the concept of ‘life-long-learning’ and the ‘learner journey’ and recent research projects include: problem-based e-learning; feedback practices for e-tutors; unit evaluation techniques for distance learning delivery; the web residency habits of students; the use of animation as a teaching resource.
I have extensive experience in programme management, curriculum development at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have worked as an independent consultant on a number of international educational pedagogy projects in the built environment. I has served on academic accreditation and review committees in Europe, Canada, Hong Kong, Tanzania and the Middle East.
