Teaching Interests

I provide a few guest lectures at UEA and elsewhere.  I take a similar approach to both teaching University students and the training of professionals – I employ experiential learning. This means that on the whole the session comprises a series of exercises, group discussions and games. The lecture material provides a structure in which these exercises can be embedded as well as reference to theory and further reading.

Training has taken place both at UEA on various climate change and water security short-courses, but also overseas in countries as diverse as Laos, Zambia, Botswana and Mozambique.
