Joss joined Flinders University as part of the Health and Physical Education teaching team in 2017. Since that time, he has led the design of the Outdoor Education study pathways, coordinated the Bachelor of Education (Secondary Health and Physical Education), undertaken the college student success lead role and most recently is the current Teaching Program Director for Education. Prior to working in Universities, Joss worked in Education for 9 years in a range of schools in both regional and metropolitan South Australia as well as Cambridgeshire in England, predominantly as a Health and Physical Education and Outdoor Education teacher. His passion for the outdoors has also supported Joss in his development and certification as an instructor in rock-climbing, mountain biking, kayaking and bushwalking.
In his capacity as a lecturer, Joss coordinates and teaches Foundation Studies in Physical Education, Outdoor Adventures, Introduction to Education in Outdoor Environments, Introduction to Outdoor Activity Leadership and Facilitating Learning and Development in Outdoor Environments. Joss’ focus in scholarship of teaching and learning centres around Mosston’s Spectrum of Teaching Styles, Outdoor Threshold Concepts and Student Engagement. To share this work and continue his own development, Joss is involved in a range of sporting, Physical Education and outdoor organisations and continues to connect with schools through a range of partnerships. As a member of the Outdoor Educators Association of South Australia (OEASA), The Australian Tertiary Outdoor Education Network (ATOEN) and the Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER), Joss enjoys sharing his work at a range of conferences and continues to advocate for embodied, meaningful and authentic learning experiences.
