Josh is a Casual Academic Teacher (CAT) in the Colleges of Education, Psychology and Social Work (EPSW) and Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS).
Josh brings a strong background in community development and youth work, including establishing the music program for the annual Schoolies Festival, working as the Recreation, Arts and Cultural Development Officer at the City of West Torrens, experience as a Youth Worker for Baptist Care SA, and as former SA Education Coordinator for TEAR Australia.
His book (Heidegger and the Lived Experience of Being a University Educator) has received international recognition for its contribution to the scholarship on university teaching. Josh offers expertise in the usage of phenomenological, ethnographic and action research approaches to educational and work-based research.
My research interests focus on contributing fresh understandings of ontological and temporal structures of everyday phenomena across work worlds. I am particularly interested in interpreting qualitative data in light of continental philosophy. Major influences on my analyses to date include Martin Heidegger and Hans-Georg Gadamer. I offer methodological expertise in qualitative methodologies (particularly hermeneutic phenomenological, ethnographic, discourse analysis and action research approaches).
