Comment from delegate on presentation on ‘Students as partners and change agents’ to 25th International Networking for Healthcare Education Conference, Cambridge, September 2014
“An excellent presentation – not only was it engaging, it was thought provoking, but also encouraged transformative learning by making the audience think of something that they could change in their practice regarding Student Engagement in Higher Education. I love the way that he engaged my attention through the use of Story Telling, images that presented powerful metaphors and humour! I felt that I will remember his presentation for many years to come! It really made an impression on me as a delegate. When I grow up, I want to be like him.”

In October 2015 I received the Distinguished Service Award from the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at their 12th Annual Conference in Melbourne, Australia, the first awardee outside North America and Australia.
