Mike Howarth facilitates academics who see the potential of learning resources that improve engagement.
Drawing on a career that spans both education broadcasting via a PhD to university lecturer, and tutor, he uses practical activities that develop a creative mind-set for fast-track development of effective online resources. The video camera is his current hand's-on tool of choice, to promote the skills of education media making and academic activity through the idea of ' the media savvy academic '.
