Nigel has worked in arts and education faculties, but became frustrated with the academic environment – particularly with it’s preference for research over teaching. He left the university system to explore practical teaching environments, and now consults privately on multi-sensory and interactive education programs. His specialty is engaging those with learning difficulties and integration problems, and programs for all age groups from birth to the aged.
Our Medieval, Ancient, and other programs, have grown out of Nigel’s desire to assist the educational value of school programs, particularly in the area of his research degrees – history.
Nigel is particularly keen to mentor new teachers, and is proud to have helped over 200 third and fourth year teaching students, or new graduate teachers, vastly increase their school placement experience through the Multisensory Education programs.
Nigel has lectured on pedagogical technique in Australia and overseas, and published history articles in national and international magazines and journals. He has a history issues blog: Rethinking History
