Teaching

Department of Psychology, Sociology and Politics

Social Sciences and Arts

I am currently undertaking research into student experience of learning contracts, student feedback and the use of MS Teams by students. Previous research was concerned with the effects of the digital divide and social inclusion, particularly in deprived communities. Here, he is particularly interested in the people who use public / third sector ICT provision and the social and economic implications of networking within these facilities and the wider community. I have also investigated the rational/irrational debate surrounding the fear of crime.
