I am a very Socratic teacher, I believe in students coming to the answer through their own inquiry and in debate with the teacher. I do not expect rote learning or memorising for exams. I will set you reading tasks and expect you to participate in discussions with me. I will help with study techniques and essay / dissertation writing, but I won't do your homework for you.

I have led courses in digital media, journalism, radio and television, ethics, news writing, PR, communication studies and political communication.

Martin Hirst was one of my lecturers at Edith Cowan University. He is passionate about journalism and about producing good journalists and this makes him a highly engaging teacher. Martin made me more confident in my abilities as a thinker and writer - I will always owe him for the time and effort he put into helping to form me as a journalist.
