I'm a freelance consultant specialising in media education and related disciplines. I was a full-time teacher for 30 years, firstly in English and latterly combining English with Media/Moving Image.
I offer a service to local authorities, schools and colleges aimed at empowering teachers to develop media education as part of literacy for all stages of school and college education. The Curriculum for Excellence English and Literacy Outcomes , with its multimodal definition of a text, puts media and moving image teaching teaching at the centre of Language and Literacy in the education system.
am also Secretary of The Association for Media Education in Scotland
(AMES). and edit its biannual journal, The Media Education Journal. For
