Facilitation & Consulting

Through Learning With Creativity Mike can provide your organization with bespoke workshops as well as seminar/webinar facilitation in contemplative, transformative and creative teaching & learning. Given his transdisciplinary approach, he is also well qualified to facilitate across boundaries to help dissolve disciplinary silos and promote communication and co-operation between members of your organization.


Mike can also leverage his extensive curriculum development expertise (online and face to face), including advising on assessment, evaluation & feedback approaches to suit your requirements. He can also apply his many years of experience as a scientific research group leader, manager and mentor.


Mike also has extensive experience of international higher education, particularly in Canada (where he carried out his PhD and two post-docs) and in transnational educational development in India (through his role in a collaboration between Trinity College Dublin and Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology (TIET) between 2016 and 2020).


Please feel free to email to discuss potential educational projects that Mike might be able to help you with.
