David is the Programme Director for International Studies and Progression at the London College of Communication, where he manages the Level 3: International Introduction to the Study of Design, Media and Screen and Level 4: Certificate in Higher Education Preparation for Design, Media and Screen

David leads the planning and delivery of key projects that support the aims and outcomes of the College Recruitment and Admissions Strategy, coordinates College activities that support the development of long-term relationships with UK schools and colleges.

David’s continuing research focuses on the use of technology in learning and teaching and developing learning activities that support international students. In David’s image making he is particularly interested in the use of generative particle systems to create images, that are then printed using analogue or traditional printmaking techniques and processes.

In 2018 David undertook a Knowledge Exchange sabbatical at Beyond Words Studio. His experience has informed conversations both within the university and with industry about how we can work together to support students and graduates achieving both academic and professional ambitions.
