Welcome – about me

Policy Specialist                 Writer                   Consultant

This site is no longer regularly updated. There will continue to be an occasional blog post, however.

I am a policy analyst, author and consultant in teaching and learning in higher education.

My work has inspired a generation of academics — and influenced university effectiveness all over the world. I’ve written a thought-provoking book on university teaching that’s become a best-selling text. It focuses on engaging with faculty members and challenging them to think.

I have a background in academic research as well as university management and strategic policy advice for governments and national agencies. As the founding chief executive of the Higher Education Academy, and a senior university leader before that, I hope I have a unique perspective on strategies for enhancing the student learning experience.

I’m a key associate of PhillipsKPA, the leading Australian firm specialising in services to the education and training sectors, and a visiting professor at University College London Institute of Education.
