Research interests

After a decade of teaching physical and outdoor education at secondary and tertiary level my passion for teaching & learning, active lifestyles and being on the beach have begun to blur. I am particularly interested in the concepts of enskilment, outdoor learning, movement, narrative research methodologies and the subjective experience of the learner.
