I am a lecturer specializing in motor learning and skill acquisition, as well the development of students’ written communication and employability skills. Having coached in a range of elite youth and college environments, my teaching is underpinned by a wealth of practical experience and also informed by my research into sports coaching, pedagogy and reflective practice.
