Media, Arts and Design academic’s research work is published by the British Council

6 January 2015

The research work of Savraj Matharu, a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Media, Arts and Design at the University of Westminster, has been published by the British Council.

The British Council project looks into technology enhanced learning initiatives in continuing professional development (CPD), in an international setting. Savraj Matharu contributed a chapter entitled ‘Using technology to provide greater flexibility and access to continuing professional development’.

Download the British Council’s ‘Innovations in the continuing professional development of English language teachers’ (2.89 MB).

The chapter examines teaching with technology using blended learning methodologies which have been used successfully in Savraj’s own teaching practice in order to not only enrich the student experience but to leverage the student learning capacity to learn new skills and process content within a short period of time.

Savraj commented: “It was a great privilege to be selected to share my knowledge and findings with the British Council. We are finding that students learn in various ways, the dissemination of knowledge may be across various technological devices and a variety of environments.”

Savraj Matharu is also the founder and program director of the new Applied Sound for Interactive Media MA taught at the University of Westminster’s Faculty of Media, Arts and Design. It is one of the first courses in the UK to specialise in sound production for the computer games and app industry.
