I recently took up a new post at the University of Manchester as Professor of Hybrid Learning and Director of Flexible Learning.
For some reason this coincided with a couple of opportunities to write about my experiences of learning, teaching and curriculum so I thought I’d capture them all in one place here.
The first of these was triggered by a reply I gave to a tweet about block teaching.
I was contacted by the Times Higher Education – Campus to write an article about my experience of block teaching, so I reached out to a past colleague who also worked on this approach and we subsequently published the article “Block to the future: why block scheduling has taken so long to catch on”.

The second article was another invited opportunity, this time triggered by me announcing my new role at Manchester. In particular they wanted an article about what a flexible future looked like for Universities and it was a brilliant opportunity to write something with Professor Danielle George the Vice-President for Blended and Flexible Learning who appointed me and with whom I will be working. The article was published by Research Professional News and can be accessed by clicking here.
Finally, following the announcement of my new role I was contacted by Tom Williams from the Times Higher to see if I would be willing to be interviewed about the role and ambitions around hybrid and flexible learning. That article can be accessed here.
