Senior Lecturer Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology

    Teaching

    My teaching interests relate to facilitating students to reflexively explore the various aspects of the social world they encounter while undertaking community-based learning. For example, when in welfare settings to explore the type of agencies that provide services and their characteristics, structures, size location. Who do they provide a service for and who is excluded? What are the implications of the funding, the culture, values and history and the impact of particular policy initiatives that influence their purpose? How does this understanding relate to sociological perspectives covered across the curriculum?
