Interests and Expertise
My additional research interests involve the scholarship of teaching and learning within which I focus on learning styles and learning journals. This research examines the impact of teaching using Kolb’s experiential learning model, the effect on student learning by the use of learning journals, and the resulting changes of student attitudes to subject matter.
