Curric Vitae

A mix of my publications and presentations on work, cartography and running (since 2010).

steveI was for many years employed at Middlesex University, latterly as Lead Academic Developer within the Centre for Academic Practice Enhancement (CAPE), and was also one of the University’s Teaching Fellows. My work focused on the curriculum and how educational developments and methodologies may be applied to enhance the student learning experience. By training I am a cartographer, having originally studied at Oxford Brookes. I am currently Chair of the Society of Cartographers, having been editor of the SoC Bulletin for 25 years.
