Somerset College Research and Scholarship Symposium 9th July 2015

I recently took part in Somerset College's Research and Scholarship Symposium. This event was an opportunity for academic and support staff to share scholarly activity from the previous academic year. My presentation was an overview of my PhD research so far, with emphasis on Elizabeth David and Stork Wives Club publications. With fifteen minutes to present my work, I had to outline as much as possible in a clear and concise manner whilst engaging the audience. The Symposium also include presentations from academics outside of the college alongside service providers affiliated to the college. The event was an ideal platform for me to share my experience as a PhD student alongside the role of a lecturer, and above all has given me further confidence to present at conferences.

Somerset College FE Show June 2015

I have been busy over the last year teaching on a variety of courses at Somerset College in Taunton.  I have taught on the BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree course alongside the Access to Higher Education course in Art and Design. Having been the  lead lecturer role on the BTEC Extended Diploma in Graphics, Media and Photography course I have seen my students work in a wide variety of mediums, including film, illustration, photography, typography and graphic design.  The FE Private View took place on the 18th June, where family and friends  were invited to see the culmination of two years work in a Final major Project. Students were given the opportunity to choose their own briefs - as diverse as a corporate identity for a Skateboard brand, a book for young children explaining Autism a film exploring the impact of domestic abuse and a dream installation.. The students have progressed to excellent universities including Falmouth, Plymouth, UWE, Arts Institute in Bournemouth and University of South Wales in a wide variety of disciplines. The images are just a small selection from both the BTEC students and Access to Art and Design students.
