With a research interest that focuses on Creative Pedagogies and the interaction between the skills agenda and the higher education curriculum, Trevor takes a keen interest in graduate employability in general and the Creative Industries in particular. He involves students in client-led 'live briefs', community based coursework and many other extra-curricular activities.
A great believer in the appropriate use of technology and the individualisation of the higher education experience, Trevor is developing TELE, a Technology Enhanced Individualised Learning Environment, a hybrid of Technology Enhanced Learning and the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment. At the heart of TELE is a feedback loop that acts as a glue to bind the teaching and learning experience together.
In support of his pedagogic and employability research Trevor is a member of the Editorial Board and Steering Committee of the ADM supported Productive Relationships Project for which he has contributed four papers. He has spoken at a number of seminars and conferences about his work on the relationship between higher education and the creative industries, and in particular the pedagogy that underpins that work.
